New turf going down at Vandy

The new turf is being laid down at Vanderbilt as we speak, along with a few other changes to the stadium including new hillside seating, new lights and a new video board.

The new turf, called Legion 46, is comprised of a monofilament fiber and slim film fiber along with a 50-50 mix of sand and rubber underneath.

The playing surface itself will see some major visual changes. When the turf is all laid out, fans will see alternating green panels of turf, anchor logos at the 35 yard line, black end zones with "Vanderbilt" on one end and "Commodores" on the other with the star V at the beginning and end of each word. 

The star V logo will remain at midfield, and "Anchor Down" will be added to the red zone on the north and south sides of the field. The Vandy athletic website has a live stream of the construction, along with more information about the project, both of which can be found here.
