With much fanfare, UTSA and the Alamodome today rolled out the brand new football field which the Roadrunners and Incarnate Word will meet on Saturday afternoon to open the 2019 college football season, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Lisa Campos, UTSA Athletic Director, says the field, which was designed and built by the same company that built the Dallas Cowboys field, is state of the art for safety and appearence.
"It is obviously brand new, so it is up to date with the technology, and the elements that are in there are to a point to the safety of our student athletes, with is our number one priority," she said.
She says it is in that early August game that the wisdom of being one of the few major college football programs in the state to play in an indoor arena shows its wisdom.
"We know that it is always going to be 72 degrees in this facility," she said. "So after doing a little bit of tailgating, and being in the sun for a while, its nice to be able to come in here and enjoy this atmosphere."
The UTSA game can be heard on Ticket 760, with the kickoff at 5 p.m. The pregame broadcast begins at 3 p.m. on Ticket 760.
