University of Arkansas

Logos Mascot: Razorback Nickname: U of A

History of the Razorback

From 1894-1910 the mascot was the cardinal which was choosen because of the schools colors. While talking to a group of students after winning against Louisiana State in 1909, Coach Bezdek told the crowd that his team had performed not like football players but “like a wild band of Razorback hogs.” In 1910 the student body voted to change the official university mascot from the Cardinal to the Razorback.
