Installation of the new FieldTurf Revolution playing surface on Wyoming’s Jonah Field was completed Thursday, according to Wyoming associate athletics director for media relations Tim Harkins.
Installation of the surface began on June 10. New features include images of the Teton Mountains in both end zones, and the lettering “7220 Feet” along the sidelines, a nod to the stadium’s NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision-leading elevation.
Just like with the old turf, the words “WYOMING” and “COWBOYS” are spelled out in both end zones. The Steamboat bucking horse symbol also remains at midfield in brown, with white and gold outlining.
The field includes over 750,000 pounds of crushed rubber, used to provide cushioning to the playing surface. The project cost about $500,000, funded by private donations.
