Wyoming's new field turf depicts mountains in both end zones

By Chris Huston | College Football Writer

Wyoming's Jonah Field at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie is the highest stadium in college football, sitting 7,220 feet above sea level.

So it's only fitting that the school's new field turf approved for installation over the summer will feature illustrations of the state's iconic Teton Mountains in both end zones. Also, in case you forget, Jonah Field's nearly one-and-a-half mile elevation is noted on both sidelines.

Here's a look at a rendering of the new field:

The Wyoming players are excited about the new look, especially the mountains.

"I think the mountains are the coolest part," said junior quarterback Brett Smith. "I think it represents the state well. I love it!"

"I think the new field really brings the Wyoming culture out, and will do a good job of connecting Wyoming fans to our program, especially with the mountains in the end zones," said Patrick Mertens, senior defensive tackle.

Mountain West Conference, indeed.
