Cowboy Football fans will enjoy a massive video board at Boone Pickens Stadium this fall.
Today, Oklahoma State officially released plans, complete with a rendering, which is above, to install what will be the “eighth largest video board at a college football only stadium,” according to the release.
The board, which measures 56 feet high and 110 feet wide, will be perched along the east wall of Gallagher-Iba Arena. The board will appear even larger being that it will be so close to the field.
It appears that the new video board will not cover the signage, that includes recognition of the 1945 National Championship, conference championships, All-Americans … etc. Also below the board is a small “ribbon” screen that displays scores around the country and stats of the game.
The board was funded completely privately by Gary and Claudia Humphreys, who reportedly travel from the DFW area for each and every Cowboy football game, home and away.
The completion date is set for August 1, which means the board will be ready for the Cowboys’ home opener, September 1 vs. Missouri State.
