UCLA Floor at Renovated Pauley Pavilion

Based on a Pac-12 Network video feed of tonight's Stanford at UCLA women's volleyball match, we can see that the center-court logo at the renovated Pauley Pavilion has been changed. Before closing for the 2011-12 academic year, Pauley's center-court area had always featured a traditional circular design, with angular "UC" and "LA" lettering facing viewers either behind press row or on the opposite side of the court.

As can be seen below, however, the school has switched to a cursive "Ucla" with underline, on which it says "BRUINS." You may click on the screen-captured photo to enlarge it.
