May 25, 2017 - We've been watching the landscape change up on the Abilene Christian University campus for the last year or so with the building of Anthony Field at Wildcat Stadium.
The walls, the press box, and the scoreboard are in place, and this week, the construction advanced to another phase.
The turf for Anthony Field is being installed.
This is a big step, and one that really makes Wildcat Stadium look like a football stadium.
ACU Athletic Director Lee De Leon said, "It feels amazing. When you look out there and finally see some green on the ground it really makes it feel like there's an actual stadium that's close to being ready to go and ready for competition in September. It's a huge step for us and something we're all very excited about. We're on time, on schedule, feel really good about the progress that we've made so far. September 16th can't get here fast enough."
The school says the stadium is on schedule.
That means ACU is still set to open their new home, Anthony Field at Wildcat Stadium, on September 16 against Houston Baptist.
