Published Add your comment

Texas A&M chancellor, John Sharp has announced that the school's new scoreboard will be the biggest in college football.

Kyle Field is due to undergo renovations in the coming seasons and one addition will be a jumbotron screen at the south end of the stadium.

The screen will measure 47 feet by 163 feet, a total square footage of 7,661 feet. This means the board will be 224 square feet than the scoreboard at Texas. 

Brent Zwerneman from the San Antonio Express-News tweeted: "Sharp said new Kyle Field video board on south end will be "largest in college athletics" (47x163 ft) & almost twice size of previous board."

The stadium's capacity will also expand to over 100,000 and will be the largest attendance in the SEC and in the state of Texas.

A&M finished with a 9-4 record making it the second season that the Aggies have outperformed Texas.

John Sharp will hope that the stadium's new features will cement the school as one of the premier programs in the SEC for years to come.
