So Uga VIII ended up serving only six games, the shortest tenure since the line of Ugas began in 1956.
The previous Uga died suddenly on of heart failure on Nov. 19, 2009. He served in the role just under 15 months.
There were six Ugas between 1956 and 2008. The next one will be the third since 2009.
Uga V, who served from 1990-99, appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1997, and was proclaimed the nation's top mascot.
Uga VIII was born on Sept. 12, 2009, under the original name of "Big Bad Bruce." The Seiler family, which has maintained the line of Ugas, announced his choice as the new Uga on Oct. 16, 2010, and he was introduced to the crowd at Sanford Stadium before the Vanderbilt game a few days later.
A press release from UGA said no funeral ceremony is scheduled.
