Longtime Texas mascot ‘Bevo’ is reportedly suffering from a ‘life-threatening condition,’ and Monday, there was a further update regarding his status.

According to Bevo XIV’s official Twitter account, the mascot is ‘still very sick and resting.’ 

Bevo XIV was unable to attend the Red River Rivalry game Saturday against Oklahoma, a tilt that saw the Longhorns upset the Sooners 24-17 in Dallas. The same Twitter account sent along his encouragement before the game.

It appears as if the Longhorns listened.
