Testing begins on Beaver Stadium's new video scoreboards

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Beaver Stadium’s new video scoreboards will be put through a scrimmage of sorts before debuting at the 2014 season opener Sept. 6.

The 156-foot by 42-foot boards, positioned in the north and south ends of the stadium will be lit for several days to ensure proper operation when Penn State hosts Akron to kick off the football season.

The first testing started this morning (Thursday) and will last until 8 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 9. The videoboards will again be fully lit from 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 11, to noon Tuesday, Aug. 12. The football team is also planning to use the videoboards during practice Saturday, Aug. 9.

The project is nearing completion, and fans got their first glimpse of what the boards can do in June when exterior-facing 35-foot by 25-foot, Nittany Lion logos were lit for the first time.
