Uga X dead at 70, in dog years that is

Updated: Jan 23

The University of Georgia announced that the school's mascot Uga X, an English bulldog also known as Que, has died at the age of 10 in human years, or 70 in dog years.

The university said the dog died peacefully in its sleep Tuesday morning at home in Savannah. Que served as mascot for the most-decorated tenure in Bulldogs football history, watching the team post a 91-18 record and win two national titles.

He made his on-field debut on Nov. 21, 2015, when the Bulldogs beat Georgia Southern 23-17 at Sanford Stadium in Athens.

Que made headlines in 2019 when he was nearly trampled by the mascot of the University of Texas, a 1,600-pound bull named Bevo.

Que was retired after the 2022 season, allowing current mascot Boom to take over. The Bulldogs' current line of pure white English bulldogs have been owned by the Seiler family since 1956, when Uga I's reign began. The dogs, which reside in air-conditioned, on-field dog houses on game days, sport spike collars and jerseys.

Georgia is the only major college that buries its mascots "within the confines" of its stadium, the school says on its athletics website. The schools first eight bulldogs are buried in marble vaults near the main gate of the south stands of Sanford Stadium.
