WACO, Texas – Baylor Athletics revealed an updated field design for McLane Stadium on Thursday. The field is being replaced for the first time since McLane Stadium’s 2014 inaugural season.

The redesigned field features design elements from the recently announced university-wide rebrand, Baylor United. Baylor partnered with NIKE to create a unified visual identity, which was revealed prior to the Green and Gold football game on April 13. The updated design features a gold interlocking BU spanning a 10-yard distance at midfield. Gold end zones will feature the green Baylor wordmark followed by the green Bear head logo.

The Hellas Matrix 46H synthetic turf will include the addition of a Cushdrain shock attenuation pad to optimize safety during impacts. The Cushdrain pad is an elastic layer that is paved into place over the laser-graded drainstone foundation to increase shock absorption and improve drainage.

McLane Stadium’s field is one of four playing surface redesigns featuring Baylor United elements. A new synthetic turf with the updated interlocking BU was added at Getterman Stadium prior to the 2019 softball season. A complete reconstruction of the grass pitch at Betty Lou Mays Field is in progress and will be complete prior to the start of the 2019 soccer season, and the Ferrell Center court will be refinished and a new design revealed prior to the 2019 volleyball, 2019-20 basketball and 2020 acrobatics & tumbling seasons.

Baylor will host seven home games for the first time since 2013, with no increase in season ticket prices or seat options. Season ticket holders receive reserved seating for all seven home games and other benefits as part of their Baylor Bear Foundation membership. Other ticket packages include the Mobile Pass season ticket, which provides a steep discount on seats for all home games through a mobile app, and the Baylor Bears Flex Plan, which allows fans to customize a three-game ticket package.

The Bears are coming off a 45-38 Texas Bowl victory over Vanderbilt and enter year three of the Matt Rhule era with an impressive group of returning starters and a third consecutive top-40 recruiting class. Baylor kicks off the 2019 season at 6 p.m. CT on Aug. 31 against Stephen F. Austin. The season opener will be broadcast from McLane Stadium on ESPN+ as part of a new partnership between ESPN and the Big 12 Conference.

Baylor Athletics Reveals Updated McLane Stadium Turf

I hope the new turf won't resemble Tulane's field. I have yet to see a multi-colored field that looks good. It always ends up looking like half the "grass" is healthier than the other half.

I like the two tone green look. Not so crazy about the blind wolverine end zone logos, but at least it isn't at the 50 and larger.

I personally think two tone green and two tone gold unis would be cool.

Has the price tag for all of the new stadium/arena/fields/pitch upgrades been revealed by Baylor?

Yeah, I don't care for that. But I'm sure it will grow on me as I watch Charlie, Hasty, Ebner, Tyquan, or Mims running the full length of the field into the endzone with our opponent trailing behind.

I like it. Love the two-tone green. I like Nebraska's field when they had it.

I can't pick up Smoak's show up here in the mountains of New Mexico. So what did Baylor spend on these projects?

I like it. And as for the Bear in the endzones? That is no wombat. It's a ferocious Grizzly. And thank God it is not the mewly Sailor Bear. Gonna see lots of Bears in endzones this year. Go Bears!

Why not just tell him the number? Less time/typing and would be kinda polite to answer a question. I mean, thanks for providing the link and all, but it doesn't seem like it has to go around and around like this.

Politeness doesn't count for much around here. I'm not on little Matty's bandwagon so I'm used to not being served kool-ade at this place.

The alt green looks good. I think it was Nebraska that had it for several years and its looks good on broadcasts. Take the logo out of the endzone and put name only centered. Seems like an obvious thing. The pros just can't quite ever get it right. Without the logos it would look pretty sharp

I played golf yesterday and we're going to the horse racing track today. We went out to the Inn of the Mountain Gods to watch the sun set. There's only so many hours in the day to do all this retirement stuff. I'll devote more time to football toward the end of August.

Ok, we might be headed that way in a few weeks. Either there, the beach, or other mountains. If I make it there I'll tell you at dinner.
