NORMAN, Okla.-- Months of construction, and weeks of work all down to this. Saturday's unveiling of Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman will be a treat for all Sooners.

With $160-million in renovations, fans can expect new club seating, and eventual wifi throughout the stadium.

But the talk of the town is the renovated south end zone, giving the team an enclosed bowl for the first time.

Last but not least, fans can now watch the game on one of the largest video boards in all of football.

"It's really just much crisper and has a better feel," said Craig Kaufman, Principal with Populous. "It`s actually the second largest board in a collegiate facility in the united states, or the world for that matter."

The project though isn't entirely finished, which could lead to traffic trouble on game day. Officials urge everyone to leave for the stadium early, to avoid issues.
