Tech’s new turf: top of the line
The very same FieldTurf that will be installed at Louisiana Tech University’s home facility over the next several months was ranked No. 5 out of 32.
Players in the league also listed FieldTurf ahead of 15 of the league’s 19 natural grass fields.
Tech is the latest NCAA Division I school to have the increasingly popular FieldTurf installed, the project beginning this week with excavation work.
It’s a long awaited addition to the Western Athletic Conference and Division 1-A program, one that will be making its official debut on Sept. 16 with a home opener against Nicholls State.
