Tuesday was day one of the month long installation process. Over the next few weeks the construction crew will lay out the entire field before adding all the logos and hash marks.

It's a $1.2m dollar project that the university says was funded entirely through private donations.

The new field will lend itself to more speed on gamedays and will allow the Bulldogs a place to practice no matter what the weather is like.
