As the football team has been elevated to a higher status in the past few years, so does the field. That’s right, as most of you know, Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium has been undergoing a turf replacement at their fabulous stadium. The current turf has been in use for a decade and was original turf. The new surface being put in is FieldTurf, a very big upgrade for the Cards. Another major change is the midfield logo, going from the original cardinal bird to the now very-much-in-use cardinal head, as seen below. Stay with Big Red Louie for turf updates, as it’s expected to be completed in the coming weeks. Also follow @uoflfootball on twitter, as they’re constantly posting updates and pictures of the new turf.
