a question regarding copyright

I am interested in a home business making small pillows in the "likeness" of college team logos. The pattern I am using for the Texas Longhorns is a Longhorn, but not in the exact shape of the school's logo.
Do I have to be concerned about marketing the "likeness" of the school's logo?
Would I have to contact the college to get permission for a likeness of their logo? Before I move forward to marketing...I need to know!

Being at UT, I know that Texas is particularly protective of it's trademarks. Even students and staff need permission to use them. Contact information for questions can be found here:
