Iowa State getting a "big boy" video board


Before the start of the 2011 season, Iowa State will have a brand new, massive video board and speaker system in the North end zone.

The construction is well underway and evident by the video below, this is a “big boy” display that will certainly enhance the fan’s experience at Jack Trice Stadium.

In fact, the entire display weighs 67,050 pounds. The high-definition screen measures 36 feet high and 79.5 feet wide. Iowa State contracted with Daktronics for the project.

Iowa State opens the season by hosting Northern Iowa. A week later, the Cyclones will host in-state rival Iowa. Texas, Texas A&M, Kansas, and Oklahoma State will all make trips to Ames this season, as well.

Jack Trice Stadium holds a capacity of 55,000.
