ORLANDO, Fla. — The most-photographed and sought-after celebrity in Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium was Uga IX, the Georgia Bulldogs mascot, at Tuesday's Capital One Bowl.
Weather-wise, it was a tough day for Uga IX — who also is known by the name Russ — with temperatures in the mid- to upper-70s. But Uga IX travels with his own box fan, and his handler gives him plenty of bottled water poured slowly so Uga can lap it up before it hits the ground.
