Commonwealth Stadium scoreboard work begins

July 15, 2011 

Work began Monday on removal of the two scoreboards behind each end zone at Commonwealth Stadium to make way for the new Daktronics HD-X scoreboards that will be installed in August. The project will include a digital ribbon board that will surround the interior of the seating bowl, a new sound system and a high-definition control room. The new video boards will be about 37 feet high and 80 feet wide, or almost 3,000 square feet, making them the 15th-largest scoreboards in the country.

The first University of Kentucky home game will be Saturday, Sept. 10, against Central Michigan.
