The Washington State football team will be playing on a new field come fall. Martin Stadium and the Rogers Practice Field will be getting their turf replaced, which has been in use since 2006 and 2010, respectively.
Here’s what the new field will look like:

From the athletic department’s release:
The surfaces of both WSU facilities will feature the iconic Cougar logo at midfield along with crimson end zones and will be completed in late July. The addition of the new turf coincides with the completion of the state-of-the-art, five-story Cougar Football Complex set in the west end of Martin Stadium and next to Rogers Practice Field.
The turf will be installed by FieldTurf, the same company used by the Seattle Seahawks, the New England Patriots, Ohio State, and Notre Dame.
Washington State opens its 2014 season Aug. 28 in Seattle against Rutgers. The first game featuring the new surface will be Sept. 13 against Portland State.
