New Mexico State QB accused of peeing on rival's logo

Gray Frame Corner

Dude, the logo really brought the field together.

A local news organization saw Diego Pavia, the starting quarterback for New Mexico State, holding his willie.

Video published to Albuquerque news channel KOB4 shows Pavia apparently peeing on the University of New Mexico emblem and flipping the bird at another Lobos insignia at New Mexico's indoor practice facility.

As the Pavia emblem was mocked, a smile could be seen on Pavia's face.

Given that Pavia grew up in Albuquerque and later played for New Mexico State in Las Cruces, the gesture was especially vicious.

A University of New Mexico spokeswoman told the outlet, "We are aware of the video and have informed NMSU Athletic Administration of its existence on Monday morning.

The only additional information provided by a spokesman for New Mexico State was that "Any information regarding the potential discipline of a student would be protected under federal privacy laws."

Pavia, a junior, has completed 1,073 passes for 1,073 yards and 10 touchdowns to four interceptions as New Mexico State is 0-3 so far this year.

The rivalry between the two colleges has a troubled history and has recently descended into violence.

At the Rio Grande Rivalry football game at New Mexico State last year, a fight between students from the competing universities sparked a fatal shooting later in the fall.
