One fan is in big trouble after trying to mount a mascot.

According to’s Anwar Richardson, a fan went onto the field during the Texas-UTSA game and tried to mount Bevo, the Longhorns' mascot. 

"Had a chance to see a second video (iPhone) that wasn't a grainy droid video. The guy did try to get into the Bevo pit and was halfway in but was tackled by the officer. Still was a crazy scene," Richardson tweeted.

It's a good thing that this fan didn't get seriously hurt considering that Bevo weighs over 1,000 pounds. 

There's also a good chance that this fan likely won't be allowed back at Longhorn games for the foreseeable future.

As for the actual game, Texas got to 2-1 overall, thanks to a 41-20 victory.
