The University of Georgia announced the passing of its beloved white English bulldog known as Que on X this morning. The animal served as the winningest mascot in the history of the university’s football team.

“We are saddened to announce that Uga X, fondly known as Que, died peacefully in his sleep earlier this morning,” the UGA Athletics account wrote on X. “Born May 27, 2013, he formally began his tenure in a collaring ceremony at the Georgia-Georgia Southern football game on Nov. 21, 2015. Que retired following the 2022 season after becoming the most decorated of all the Bulldog mascots. He compiled a football record of 91-18, presided over two SEC titles, the 2021 and 2022 College Football Playoff national championships, and seven New Year’s Six bowl appearances. He will always be remembered as a Damn Good Dawg.”
