    I'm not sure it is a font...it may have been a specially-created graphic just for UVA's logo.

    But I could be wrong.

    I'd second WildCowboy on that. Most actual fonts are solid - I've never seen a font that's only a border.

    Sometimes font packages come with outlined variants — but I agree that this is probably a custom job.

    For the OP: If you just want the V, trace it. If you want a font that could fill in the rest of the alphabet, try the Elan family. In the heavier weights, the lower and small caps V match fairly well. Looks kind of wussy for an athletic theme, though.

    It's easy peasy to turn text into outlines, if that's what you need.

    I ended up tracing it and going from there. The job is done. Thanks!

    You can create outline fonts in Illustrator--type what you need, then change the text color to clear (or the background color), change the stroke color to black (or the invert of the background/whatever color you want the font to be), and set stroke width to .25 or higher...
