Georgia fell behind Texas quickly in the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday night in New Orleans.

But the trouble started before that for the Bulldogs.

The Texas mascot appeared to go after UGA's bulldog mascot before the game. Fortunately, no people or animals were injured.

The Texas mascot is Bevo XV, a longhorn steer that weighs about 1,800 pounds. Georgia’s famous mascot is Uga X, an English bulldog that weighs in at around 60 pounds.

Both mascots were on the sidelines while a pack of photographers snapped away with pictures.

However, it got scary when Bevo suddenly charged toward Uga with his horns. Uga jumped out of the way before Bevo’s handlers pulled back the steer.
