Nevada Wolf Pack Looks A Lot Like State's Wolfpack

n..c. state

North Carolina State wants to know if its snarling wolf logo is showing up on merchandise sold at Nevada.

"Toughie" is the cartoon wolf that wears a red sweater and a beanie and is an N-C State trademark used on Wolfpack merchandise from flip flops to T-shirts.

Nevada's teams are called the Wolf Pack and the school's primary logo is a different wolf. A mug shot version of the N-C State wolf looks similar to one seen on items including a welcome mat and cookie jar that Nevada's athletics department sells. The difference is the Nevada version is blue and wears a top hat.

N-C State officials say they've sent an inquiry to Nevada about the mug shot version of Toughie. But there's been no response yet.
