When Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun football team opens the season on September 2nd against Southeastern at Cajun Field, they’ll do so with a new turf.

Louisiana Director of Athletics, Dr. Bryan Maggard, made the announcement today.

“The replacement of the Cajun Field turf is another step in upgrading our facilities while improving the overall experience for our student-athletes,” Maggard said in a University press release. “Additionally, it will allow us to host various types of events on the field and further enhance the game-day experience for our fans.”

According to the release, it will be Matrix Turf, the same used at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, home of the Cowboys.

“This is a much needed upgrade for Cajun Field,” head football coach Mark Hudspeth said in the release. “Our team really appreciates the university and athletics department for their continued effort to give our student-athletes the best resources in order to compete for championships.”

Dr. Maggard will speak more about the turf, among a range of topics, when he joins me on ESPN1420 this Thursday afternoon from 3 to 4. Tune in at 1420 on the am dial, or listen live here.
