The University of Incarnate Word football program is going to stand out next season thanks to a unique addition to their field. While the Cardinals will not be doing any crazy field turf coloring like the Boise State Broncos and their famous blue turf, Incarnate Word will be spicing up their end zones with a brand new camouflage design featuring the school colors, red and black. In fact, the University of Incarnate Word becomes the first football program in the NCAA to feature camouflage end zones.
The end zones are also the same turn that is used by the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons.
Incarnate Word athletic director Brian Wickstrom shared a photo of the end zones getting installed this week on social media.

Those should be a hit.
It is believed that the end zone installation at Gayle and Tom Benson Stadium in San Antonio will be completed by June 1.
The University of Incarnate Word kicks off its 2018 campaign on Sept. 1 against New Mexico. The following week, the Cardinals travel to face North Texas, before returning home to San Antonio for the home opener on Sept. 15 against Stephen F. Austin. Incarnate Word will be hoping to find the camouflage end zones early and often.
