South Dakota State University's two main athletic venues get big scoreboard upgrades:
Installation of a multi-million dollar scoreboard project is under way at South Dakota State University.

Crews began installing the support structure for a new scoreboard at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium on Monday, Aug. 15. The scoreboard, which is being manufactured by Brookings-based Daktronics, will measure approximately 121 feet wide by 56 feet high and feature a large full-color ProStar® video replay screen in the center.

Other stadium improvements, including new signage and a new sound system, are expected to be completed in time for the Jackrabbits' football opener Sept. 2.

Once work at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium is compete, crews will begin installation of a new scoreboard in Frost Arena. It will be the first scoreboard replacement at the basketball, volleyball and wrestling facility since it opened in 1973.

The Frost Arena project will include a four-sided scoreboard with four ProStar® video screens measuring 12 feet by seven feet, two ProAd® displays measuring 60 feet long by four feet high and a new full-color digital ProTable® scorers table.

The $3 million project is being financed by the SDSU Foundation.
