It doesn’t take a Hall of Fame coach to know the end zone is the literal measurement of success for a college football program. Visit it more often than your opponent on a week-to-week basis and championships tend to follow.
Collegiate athletic departments across the United States have also honed in on the potential of the space that lies just beyond the pylons. End zone expansions are the latest trend in Division I collegiate football stadium design – and our design team doesn’t see the movement ending anytime soon. The proven revenue and performance benefits are simply too powerful to ignore.
On top of creating a more intimidating game day atmosphere, end zone projects realize the potential for unique seating and premium spaces along with integrating new team spaces that benefit more than just football student-athletes. Each university considering an end zone renovation has a wealth of options unique to its culture and footprint.
We’ve been fortunate to work on a number of end zone projects for premiere college football programs in recent years. Here’s an inside look at how the latest took shape and help take their respective programs to the next level:

Incarnate Word can hang their hats on the fact they put up 30 points against an FBS team however, it’s still going be tough for the Cardinals to do much better than their 1-10 record last season if their defense can’t find ways to stop opposing offenses. North Texas is solid, experienced team with great offensive weapons and is the type of team I feel that no one is really going to want to play as they certainly have the potential to beat almost anyone if their defense is improved. North Texas was one of my favorite plays last week and as I imagine North Texas will be favored by about 30-35 points, my initial thoughts are to take Mean Green and also put a play on the over if that number isn’t too high.
