TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

University of Arizona officials say a bronze sculpture on the Tucson campus has been vandalized.

They say the 12-foot tall bronze of four bobcats has been covered with yellow spray paint and the letters "ASU."

The vandalism comes just days before the annual football game in Tempe between the UofA and archrival Arizona State University.

Last week, the white hillside "A" in Tempe was covered in red paint, which is one of the Wildcats' school colors.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that "The Arizona Wildcat Family" sculpture has been displayed for the last decade on the Alumni Plaza near the campus mall.

The artwork shows a male and female bobcat and two kittens lounging together. The sculpture was created by a Tubac artist.
