The Auburn Tigers are 20 university teams in 13 sports that are part of the Auburn University. Some of the teams have been in existence almost since the university opened in 1856. The university is located in Auburn, Alabama. The head of the sports department is Allen Greene. Athletes play in the Division I National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and are members of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).
Meaning and History
The university’s debut logo is based on the image of the tiger, the mascot of Oberne athletes. The author is Phil Neel, who designed it in an animated style. In 1957, the animal received aggressive features: formidably raised eyebrows, closely watching eyes, and a curved jaw in a growl. The tiger’s head is depicted in full-face and has a small cap with the letter “A,” which indicates the name of the city and university. In this form, the emblem existed until 1970 inclusively. Then it was replaced by another trademark.
There is no longer an animal in the updated version – only two intersecting symbols in the form of a monogram. “AU” is superimposed on each other. They are placed in a strict sequence, as read: on the front background – “A,” on the back – “U.” They are painted in the official colors of the sports department – orange (burnt orange) and dark blue.
