Towson Tigers Logo

Both the current Towson Tigers logo and the previous one dwell on the tiger as its main element. On the current emblem, we can see the side view of a tiger’s head with its mouth open. There are sharp fangs that somehow “rhyme” with the way the word “Towson” is written above. The palette combines black and yellow.
