A lot happens during the course of a decade – except when it comes to the playing surface at Beaver Stadium in University Park, Pennsylvania, home of the Penn State University Nittany Lions.

In between home football games during the week of Oct. 12, work crews removed the field’s sod, which had been in place since October of 2005, and installed a new Kentucky bluegrass field. Approximately 70,000 square feet of sod was used to complete the stadium playing surface and the nursery on campus. Tuckahoe Turf Farms in Hammonton, New Jersey supplied the sod.
