Out with the old and in with the new as the Pac-10 expands to twelve teams in the Fall of 2011 (Utah and Colorado).
In the meantime, the Conference of Champions has adopted a new logo (not officially released yet).
KVAL Sports caught glimpse of the shield design on the newly replaced field turf at Autzen Stadium.
It appears the new insignia is very capable of changing from the Pac-10 to the Pac-12.
As we showed you in May, Autzen has lost its famed crown in the middle of the field.
Previously the center of the field was slightly higher than the sidelines.
The Ducks practice on flat surfaces inside the Moshofsky Center and Kilkenny Field. Now they will play on a flat game surface as well.
The field is an advanced version of the old field turf that was last installed in 2002.
The $1.8 million project is scheduled for completion on July 15th
