A-State Fans Will See the Red Wolf Today

ARKANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY (KAIT) - For the first time, ASU fans will be able to see what the new Red Wolves logo will look like today.

The mascot will be revealed for everyone to see this morning at 11 a.m. on the east side of the student union.  Region 8 News will be there to cover the event live and will have live reports on Midday at 11 a.m. and on our broadcasts later in the day.

One of the reasons ASU chose the Red Wolves as the new mascot was due to the red wolf being a once common species in the Natural State.  It would also be easy to protect under copyright laws for the university.

Athletic team will continue to play under the Indian name until next fall.
