“North Texas has a different team than they did a year ago,” Louisiana Tech head coach Skip Holtz said Tuesday. “A year ago, they had a great tailback, they were featuring him, had a young sophomore quarterback. They were running the ball more, they were in bigger sets.
“This year, you’re seeing them more in four-wides, they put more speed on the field. They spread the field throwing the ball a lot more. A year ago, they had a senior tailback that was their workhorse and they were feeding him. You could load the box more. This year it’s more pass-first, run-second and that’s one of the reasons they’re putting up so many points because they’re making people play in space. I don’t think you can take last year’s results and compare it to this year’s team because it’s completely different what they’re featuring. Fine is a year older, he is now the king of the hill and the feature of that offense. He’s doing a nice job.”

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:
