Northwestern's Ryan Field will be getting a bit of a makeover, as the school announced Monday that it will be upgrading the stadiums videoboard as well as installing new LED ribbon boards to the north and south end zones.

"This is an exciting announcement for members of the Northwestern Football family and another indication of our commitment to providing the best possible gameday experience for fans and guests of Chicago's Big Ten Team," said coach Pat Fitzgerald in a release. "Initiatives of this magnitude don't happen without the hard work of many individuals across campus and the support of our terrific fanbase, so I'd like to thank all those who played a role in making these videoboard upgrades a reality. We can't wait for our fans to join us in experiencing an enhanced gameday atmosphere when we take the field against the Golden Bears on Aug. 30."

The videoboard will be the biggest change, as the school plans to nearly triple the size of the structure in the northeast corner of the stadium. The current screen is 390 square feet in size, but the new screen will cover 1,100 square feet.
