Beaver Stadium getting facelift

Penn State officials have signed on with a company that will install a football field's worth of LED signage in Beaver Stadium.

Penn State officials recently selected ANC Sports to install, operate and create content two sections measuring 350 linear feet of LED signage each for football games at Beaver Stadium.

The new signage will synchronize with various live sports feeds to distribute real-time information to the displays. The new system also can handle out-of-town scores, in-game team summaries, up-to-the-minute player statistics and many other stats.

Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn't mention this:

Beaver Stadium's official capacity is 107,282. That makes it the largest venue in North America and the third largest in the world.

Ha, suck on that (not so) Big House!
