BOZEMAN - Montana State unveiled its new athletics logo this afternoon.
The Bobcat got a new look. The classic Bobcat head now has a new rounded design, tips added to the ears and a white mouth in place of the former all-gold filled face. More detail was also added to the ‘Cat's eye.
The last time the school's athletic logo was redesigned was in 2004.
"Our coaches and student-athletes are enjoying an era of tremendous and dynamic success, and we want our logo and marks to reflect this," said MSU Director of Athletics Peter Fields. "Our new logo captures a feeling of action while staying true to what was originally called the Aggie spirit when this school adopted the Bobcat nickname nearly a century ago. Campus leaders then cited a blending of tradition with action, and that's what we think we captured."
In addition to the new logo, word marks and a modernized 'M' also stand as part of the re-branding effort. The package was unveiled Wednesday at the Stadium Club at Bobcat Stadium.
