Aggie pride starts here.

The “Battle for the Golden Horseshoe” returned to UC Davis Health Stadium for Homecoming in October. The annual matchup against the Cal Poly Mustangs resulted in a convincing win, 48-24, in front of a record crowd of 11,194 people. The event also featured UC Davis’ newest home game tradition: Maggie the Aggie. Fourth-year animal science major Tatum Burris, dubbed “Maggie the Aggie” and dressed in UC Davis garb, leads the football team onto the field atop her horse, Maverick. “The field and noise can make the horse nervous but thankfully Maverick is pretty used to that type of environment, and overall he was very calm,” she said after an earlier game.
