Texas A&M is reportedly hiring Carolina Green, a sod company based out of North Carolina to install new grass at Kyle Field in time for the Aggies’ next home game against Ole Miss on October 11. The grass will be replaced with another natural surface, costing $300,000.
The Aggies’ 38-10 win against Rice was a successful night but the field was in very poor condition.
According to Aubrey Bloom of theeagle.com, Carolina Green will replace the current field with a much thicker sod base that is grown on plastic. The current field is only a month old. Over the past five years, Carolina Green has also done in-season replacements for the Washington Redskins, Philadelphia Eagles, University of Tennessee, University of Kentucky, and University of South Carolina.
The project will start on September 29 and will take two days to complete.
The Aggies will be on the road for the next three games. Their next test will be against SMU tomorrow at 3:30 et on ABC.
