NORMAN -- Installation of the new big screen at Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium is complete.

Norman-based contractor Daktronics/Aztec has spent the last two weeks raising into place the 120 panels that make up the 47-foot-high by 167-foot-wide structure, which measures as the second-largest video board in all of college athletics.

View a unique perspective of the video board installation by viewing the images below.

The new video board will debut with Oklahoma's 2016 home opener vs. ULM on Sept. 10. Order tickets online or by calling (800) 456-GoOU.
