Oklahoma is nine days away from opening up its 2018 football season. The Sooners host FAU in Week 1.

When the two teams take the field that day, the turf at Owen Field will have a different look to it. Oklahoma is rolling out a new field design.

The update was unveiled today. Most notable are the changes at midfield and in the end zones.

Overall, nothing too crazy, but it looks a little sharper in our opinion.

The Sooners have been playing home games at Owen Field (otherwise known as Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium) since 1923. The stadium attendance record was set in last year's win over TCU.

Oklahoma will play rival Oklahoma State at home this season, as well as two big non-conference opponents, Florida Atlantic and UCLA.

The FAU and UCLA games will be the first two of the regular season. Overall, four of OU's first five games are at home.

Oklahoma and FAU will kick off at noon ET on Sept. 1. FOX will broadcast the game.
