Bulldog fans, rejoice! 

Sports Illustrated is celebrating college football’s 150th season by ranking the top 10 greatest mascots in the history of the game.

Uga, the iconic all-white English bulldog, was picked ahead of several other mascots. 

“Georgia’s line of pure white English bulldogs, now on No. 10, has been a staple of the mascot landscape since 1956,” Sports Illustrated said

Since 1956, all the dogs serving as Uga have been part of a lineage of English Bulldogs owned by Sonny Seiler.

Uga X is definitely the top dog. "University of Oregon: The Duck" came in second place, followed by "Louisiana State University: Mike the Tiger."
