Meaning and history

Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders Logo history


Nothing but the letters “MTSU” could be seen on the emblem used in 1981-1997. Then, the university replaced it by a Pegasus flying over the full name of the program, in which the word “Raiders” was more prominent. The lettering was reduced to “MT” on the current Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders logo.
