Because football isn’t big enough in the SEC. The largest video board in college sports will live at Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium this fall.
The massive 190-by-57 foot board – that’s 10,830-square-feet – is under construction, AL.com reports. If you’re bored at work, you can keep up with the progress of the $13.9 million project behind the south end zone watching a livestream video (above).
How do the rest of the video boards across the SEC rank?
Texas A&M is second overall nationally and in the SEC with a 163-by-47 foot board (7,661 square feet). Arkansas follows with the fifth largest nationally – third in the SEC – with a 166.3-by-37.8 foot board (6,286 square feet).
Georgia ranks 11th in the SEC (36th nationally) with a 73-by-36 foot board (2,628 square feet) at Sanford Stadium.
The smallest video board in the SEC belongs to defending conference champion Alabama, which has a 53-by-20 foot display at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
