NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- We're getting our first look at the new turf installed at Notre Dame Stadium.
The football field will include traditional diagonal striping in both end zones.
There will be 18 lines, nine in each zone, oriented at 42 degree angles toward the Basilica and the Golden Dome.
The numbers 18 and 42 represent 1842, the year the university was founding.
There will also be a traditional interlocking ND logo at midfield, and the 35-yard line marks for kickoffs will include small green shamrocks.
