Texas and UGA might have two of the most famous mascots in college sports, but that doesn't necessarily put them on friendly terms.

On Tuesday night, during the pomp-and-circumstance portion of the Sugar Bowl pregame from New Orleans, the Longhorns' Bevo openly detested the presence of Uga The Dog, while the media convened for a photo opportunity.

The result: A violent sneak attack that could have had an ugly ending.

Here's the breakdown of this crazy sequence:

**Bevo was cordoned off in a little section of the Superdome sideline, while the media operated around the makeshift fencing.

**And before Uga could enter the blue walls, Bevo, uh, bull-rushed the Georgia mascot, with the likely intent to intimidate or harm the dog.

**Reacting quickly, Uga finagled a quick exit from the brouhaha and escaped apparently injury-free.

The same could not be said for the gentleman in the dark suit (middle screen). 

His back was turned to Bevo before the incident took off; and as part of Bevo's attempted strike, the man in the suit was knocked about 4 or 5 feet before hitting the ground hard.

In fairness to Bevo, the cordoned-off area didn't allow for much wiggle room, perhaps enhancing the steer's anxiety level. 

Or maybe Bevo's just upset about Georgia being a substantial Vegas favorite for Tuesday's rare clash (the schools haven't squared off in 30-plus years).
