COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M's mascot Reveille is in the doghouse.
The 6-year-old collie missed Saturday's triple-overtime win against Fresno State after she snapped at her cadet handler for stepping on her tail while running earlier in the week.
A&M's vice president for student affairs said Sunday that Reveille was quarantined at the university's veterinary school for a couple of days as part of a standard operating procedure. The mascot will be back on the sidelines for the Aggies' game with Louisiana-Monroe on Saturday.
Reveille is considered the highest-ranking member of the school's Corps of Cadets. She stands at attention in her maroon coat during sporting events and other functions.
