Texas announced they were going away from natural grass earlier this month and this week we learned officially that next season Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium will be FieldTurf. The modern artificial turf is more durable and reportedly results in fewer injuries, combine that with the embarrassing state of the field last Thanksgiving and this is not a surprising decision.

AAS writer Kirk Bohls has a good article up on the history of FieldTurf and Texas’ decision to move to it.
