Feb. 10, 1917: Six Aggies, aka the "Branding Bunch," stole the University of Texas' new mascot and branded the longhorn with 13-0, the outcome of the 1915 A&M victory over UT. This kidnapping is generally regarded as how the mascot got its name, Bevo.
When the Texas students finally found its steer, they modified the "13-0" to look like "Bevo." (UT's website disputes the claim and says its students did not rebrand the steer's hide.) In 1920, Bevo was cooked up and served at a barbecue with A&M officials as guests. A&M students would steal Bevo again in 1963.
