BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- With spring football coming to a close last weekend, Western Kentucky has started the process of installing new field turf at Houchens Smith Stadium.
Workers began pulling up the current playing surface Monday. The project is expected to take six weeks. The new turf will feature the traditional red towel at midfield, a Conference-USA logo, and black end zones with red W-K-U lettering.
WKU officially becomes a member of Conference-USA July 1.
