College Football Program Shows Off New Camouflage End Zones

The University of the Incarnate Word launched a football program in 2009. In 2014, the Cardinals made the jump up to the Division I, FCS level. And this year, the team is joining the ranks of programs with very unique fields.

UIW has stopped short of a Boise State-esque full-colored field. Other programs like Eastern Michigan, Eastern Washington, and Central Arkansas have followed in the Broncos' footsteps in recent years. Incarnate Word is only going with the end zones, but they are quite bold.

The Cardinals' end zones now feature a red and black camouflage pattern. We saw some photos of the installation earlier this month.

Incarnate Word put out a new video showing off the final result of the new camouflage end zones.

UIW is claiming the first camo end zone in college football. From athletic director Brian Wickstrom:

This is not the only big chance for the San Antonio-based program this season. It will also be the first year for new head coach Eric Morris.

Morris most recently served as offensive coordinator and inside receivers coach at Texas Tech. He played for the Red Raiders from 2004-08.

He also has experience coaching under former TTU head coach Mike Leach and Washington State. Before that, he was a graduate assistant and quality control coach at Houston.

Incarnate Word opens with two road games against FCS opponents. On September 1, the Cardinals travel to New Mexico, and have North Texas in Week 2.

Stephen F. Austin will be the opponent when fans first check out the camo end zones in action. That game will be played on September 15.
