Jack Trice Stadium

What's the score?

Workers have assembled, in three pieces, the structure to support a new 67,000-pound Daktronics video scoreboard and sound system above the Jacobson building at the north end of Jack Trice Stadium. The project is on a tight timeline to be completed in time for the 2011 season, which opens in Ames Sept. 3. Members of the football team served the work crew lunch one day last week to show their appreciation. The new board and support structure will cost approximately $5 million.
