MOSCOW -- The University of Idaho has unveiled a new logo and is urging fans to "Throw the V," a hand signal like a peace sign, to declare their support for Vandal athletics.
The new logo is a gold stylized "V" with a black outline and a banner that says: THROW THE "V."
Athletics director Rob Spear says the new logo is "about Vandals connecting with other Vandals, showing their pride and building a tradition."
He says the university heard from fans who wanted something distinctive. He says they listened and created and licensed the new logo and phrase, which are now available on Vandal athletics merchandise.
The new logo was unveiled for the university's homecoming weekend.
Louisiana Tech's football team beat Idaho 24-11 on Saturday.
