New Mexico State Aggies Logo
The current logo of the New Mexico State Aggies features a caricature of Old West gunfighter and lawman Frank “Pistol Pete” Eaton. Interestingly, the same character was depicted on the historic athletic logo of Oklahoma State used between 1973 and 2000.
On the New Mexico State Aggies logo, Pistol Pete is depicted in cowboy attire (a hat, a vest, and chaps). On the emblem introduced in 2007, Pete is holding two pistols in his hands.
