The Idaho State Bengals are replacing the turf football field at Holt Arena according to a social media post from the school.
Idaho State was a pioneer in using artificial turf as the facility used a removable synthetic surface dating back to the opening in 1970. They last replaced the field in 2011 when they opted to use SoftTop with panels that could also be removed and stored for later use.
Idaho State is tentatively scheduled to start the season in Week Zero against New Mexico on Saturday, August 29. The first home game for the Bengals is scheduled for Saturday, September 12 against Northern Iowa.
