Marcello shared the official updated copyrighted shield logo on Clint Richardson of has a detailed breakdown on the updated logo versus the old logo.

Below is the example shared by Richardson on Twitter that shows the changes in a GIF on the Auburn helmet, and you can certainly tell a difference in the logos. The white space between the upper parts of the A and U are gone, and the white space in the lower portion has been reduced.

Richardson also noted the branding changes will be in the “Sabon” font. “Copperplate” is the previous font.
