Laramie, Wyo. • A new playing surface will be installed this summer at Wyoming's War Memorial Stadium.

The FieldTurf Revolution playing surface on Jonah Field will have a distinctive Wyoming design and will be completed in time for the 2013 college football season. It will cost about $500,000 and is being paid for with private funds.

FieldTurf has been installed at many top NCAA football stadiums for its grass-like performance and safety.

The new turf will include a depiction of the Teton Range in both end zones along with the traditional words "WYOMING" and "COWBOYS." Also new will be the lettering "7220 Feet" on both sidelines, indicating the stadium's elevation as the highest Football Bowl Subdivision field in the nation.

UW's traditional bucking horse and rider will remain at midfield.
