Kansas State will soon install new turf at Snyder Family Stadium. Above is what it will look like when painted.
The turf itself will be a special product from AstroTurf, called GameDay Grass. K-State will be the first Football Bowl Subdivision member to use it.
It will feature AstroTurf’s revolutionary new Horseshoe fiber, which is an “Omega” shape with two end columns with a thicker diameter. The design imparts mechanical memory so that the fiber remains upright longer — and looks like real grass — unlike other fields whose fibers quickly flatten and split or shred at the spine.
