Maryland To Lay Black Or Pewter Turf At Byrd Stadium, According To Report

While it has been confirmed that Byrd Stadium, the University of Maryland's football stadium, will be fitted with synthetic turf to replace the grass it has had since 1950, a new report from WUSA9 is suggesting that the turf will be a color other than the conventional, pseudo-natural green.

According to Omar Mohammed: "A source within the program told me that the turf being applied to the field will be either black or pewter." A dark-colored field would match up with this computer-generated image of the new Byrd Field turf that has been making its way around the Internet.

The laying of a black-or-pewter field has yet to be confirmed, and it has not been reported anywhere else as of now.
