This past Friday, the UCLA football team held a closed scrimmage at the Rose Bowl. In addition to getting some important work accomplished, the players and coaches had a chance to see some of the changes at the Rose Bowl.
One of the key items in Phase I of the Rose Bowl Renovation is the installation of a new state-of-the-art LED video board which is more than twice as large (78 feet wide by 30 feet high) as the previous board at the Rose Bowl. It is located at the north end of the stadium.The video board was operational for the Soccer Gold Cup in June and will make its football debut on September 10 when the Bruins host San Jose State in the 2011 home opener at 7 pm.
In addition, the Rose Bowl also has a new scoreboard on the south end of the bowl. It has a nostalgic design, recalling a bygone era of the stadium's history. It will also make its debut on Sept. 10.
