Come late September, Spartan Stadium will not only house the reigning best college football team in the state, but it will also house the biggest video board in Michigan.  According to Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio, the project is costing roughly $10 million and will be “absolutely the largest in the state.”

As if there isn’t enough competition on the field with the University of Michigan, there is also competition off of it.  Last year, UofM put up state-of-the-art scoreboards above its end zones, each totaling some 4,000 square feet.  Michigan State will top that by adding two boards in the north endzone at 4,000 square feet each but then also a board in the south endzone that will cover about 5,300 square feet.  They will also be adding a 450-foot long ribbon board along the top of the bleachers in the north endzone.

The 5,300 square foot video board will rank as the sixth biggest in college football.

Here are pictures of what the north endzone currently looks like and the mock-ups for what the finished products will look like compared to what has been there for decades.

Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis was asked to describe the project.  His description was simple, “awesome”.  How long will it be until UofM fans start crying for a board that’s 5,301 square feet?
