If you're happen to take a stroll on the u-n-o campus you probably won't miss the newest addition outside of the Sapp Fieldhouse.

This morning the campus welcomed its new 8 foot tall 1500 pound "maverick monument". A ninety ton crane set the bull in place after it traveled from a bronze foundry in Utah.

This is the first mascot statue in the University of Nebraska system. UNO says it symbolizes the students' determination, pride, and success.

Elizabeth Kraemer tells us, "Everyone's really excited about the fact that we have something that represents the student body, that we're forward thinking, that we're strong, that we're proud. so we're really excited about that."

Selecting the statue was about a year long process. Last year Jocelyn Russell's design was selected and she was here to hand-deliver the large beast.

The statue will be "unleashed" with a public dedication on august 24th.
