WACO, Texas (AP) - Officials at Baylor University and Texas Christian University are intervening after a statue on the Baylor campus of former star quarterback Robert Griffin III was spray-painted TCU purple.

The vandalism of the statue outside McLane Stadium in Waco was discovered Thursday. On Friday, photos emerged of “61-58” painted in Baylor green on a wall on the TCU campus in Fort Worth.

In a joint statement, Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw and TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte condemned the acts of vandalism. McCaw said “it is most disappointing that the actions of a few cast a negative light on a rivalry that dates back more than a century.” Del Conte says TCU officials “are working closely with Baylor and public safety officials at both universities on their investigations.”
