KEYE TV Sports Exclusive: BEVO Shares His Turf

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT

Standing for all things UT for more than 90 years, BEVO's story reads like a historical tale.  But there's never been a chapter quite like this one.

"Reveille is always curious, especially when she sees BEVO," says Daylon Koster, Mascot Corporal for Reveille VIII, the official mascot of Texas A&M University.

We found plenty of vegetation on BEVO's ranch Northwest of Austin, but Thursday nothing was more vibrant than the olive branch.

"It's just such a big tradition," says Koster, Texas A&M Class of '15.  "Not just for A&M not just for Longhorns but for Texas in general, it makes kids want to play sports."

Daylon Koster, a Cedar Park native, is with the Mascot Company in the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets.  As part of the Sunrise Showmanship Camp, he brought the highest ranking member of the Corps, Reveille VIII, the Cadet General, behind enemy lines.

"We're here today giving leadership presentations with the theme being lead the way," says Koster, in his first year as Reveille VIII's handler.

This is the first time Reveille has been on BEVO's home turf, and obviously we are not talking about Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium.  But while it's the first time, it might also be the last time, as this Sunday Texas A&M officially moves from the Big 12 to the SEC.

"Old Aggies and alumni have always valued that rivalry, not only with UT but with all the other schools in the Big 12," says Koster.

"I think anytime you have a school with a great tradition it's going to be respected by other schools with great traditions," says Brady Maus, a BEVO handler and member of the UT Silver Spurs.

Texas and Texas A&M first met on the football field in 1894.  But a rivalry that even outdates their legendary mascots has reached its end, at least for a while.  And while some might remember the results a little better than others, one thing is for sure.  Starting next season, these old rivals will have to find a new trail to blaze.KEYE TV Sports Exclusive: BEVO Shares His Turf
