When Ohio State takes the field against Notre Dame on Saturday, it will do so on new artificial turf at Ohio Stadium.

The turf at the Horseshoe was replaced this offseason after the spring game back in April. Thus far, no games have been played on it, but players have been able to get used to the surface during practices. 

According to head coach Ryan Day, the new carpet makes for a "fast field" and the players have approved of it. 

We already know how the field will look, thanks to these renderings which were released a few months ago.

We'll see how it plays under the lights on national television against the Fighting Irish two days from now.

Notre Dame and Ohio State will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC Saturday night.
