Virginia Cavaliers Tickets for Sale

Virginia's first mascot was a black-and-white mongrel dog named Beta, who was cherished by the University community in the 1920s and '30s. The canine was named after the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, which bought his license at least once. Considered no less than a member of the student body, Beta pursued a wide range of interests--from football to scholarly discourse. He was welcomed at most University functions, including dances, fraternity parties and lectures. He attended a course at Cabell Hall about Plato so frequently that his name was called in the roll, at which time he would bark out his presence. His most famous exploit came after being left behind in Athens, Ga., following a UVa football game with Georgia. It was not until two weeks later that a scratch was heard at the back door of the Beta House, and a cold, ragged and hungry Beta stood there.

In 1963, the University mascot became a bare-faced horseback rider in Cavalier garb. Both the horse and rider were furnished by the UVa Polo Club. However, the mounted Cavalier and his horse parted company in 1974 with the inception of Astroturf at Scott Stadium. From 1974 to 1982, the Cavalier performed on foot. The 'Hoo, an orange-costumed mascot, made a brief appearance in 1983 but did not capture the support of the student body. The costumed Cavalier with a large character head debuted the following football season in 1984 and has remained the official mascot of the University. The Cavalier performs with the UVa cheerleaders at all football and men's and women's basketball games as well as various other University-related and athletic events. The Cavalier is selected from the student body through open tryouts. The mounted Cavalier made its return in the Florida Citrus Bowl at the end of the 1989 football season. Due to its instant popularity, the Cavalier on horseback returned the following season on a regular basis and continues to lead the Virginia football team onto the field at the beginning of all home games.
