ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Uga VI, mascot for Georgia football teams
that won six bowl games among 87 victories over a nine-year span,
was interred at the university's football stadium today.
Uga VI died from heart failure Friday in his hometown of
Savannah. The body of the English bulldog, whose registered name
was Uga V's Whatchagot Loran, was flown to Athens along with his
master's family in the university plane. The body was carried inside Uga's kennel on the back of a golf cart across the field at Sanford Stadium accompanied by the song, "The Battle Hymn of the Bulldog Nation," which is played before Georgia football games. A successor will be announced at a later date.
