Another view of the endzone, facing south. Each letter (as well as yard markers) had to be stitched into the turf. The turf, meanwhile, is similar to the turf used at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium. It is expected to last a minimum of 10 years. It features an extra rubber layer underneath (for extra cushion) that the outdoor practice field and stadium fields do not. The athletic department also has equipment to "brush" and clean the field, and evenly distribute the rubber pellets after each practice.
