With the Nebraska Cornhuskers getting ready to go out onto the field, head coach Bo Pelini decided to have his cat help lead the charge.

Along with leading the team out onto the field, Pelini raised his cat in the air during the spring game in a "Circle of Life" moment. 

UPDATE: Sunday, April 13 at 12:05 p.m. ET

A local TV station opened their sports segment with a video of Pelini and his cat set to the Lion King opening song.

The team's Twitter account posted a picture of the cat as well.

The cat was in honor of the Fake Bo Pelini Twitter account that features a fake picture of Pelini with a cat.
