The next time you attend a game at Ryan Field, the in-stadium video displays are certain to catch your eye. Northwestern announced Monday that it is tripling the size of its current videoboard and installing new LED ribbon boards overlooking both end zones, all in time for the 2014 season opener Aug. 30 vs. Cal.
"This is an exciting announcement for members of the Northwestern Football family and another indication of our commitment to providing the best possible gameday experience for fans and guests of Chicago's Big Ten Team," Pat Fitzgerald said in a team realase. "Initiatives of this magnitude don't happen without the hard work of many individuals across campus and the support of our terrific fanbase, so I'd like to thank all those who played a role in making these videoboard upgrades a reality. We can't wait for our fans to join us in experiencing an enhanced gameday atmosphere when we take the field against the Golden Bears on Aug. 30."
