McLane gets futuristic touch

McLane Construction Baylor's McLane Stadium will feature new amenities for the high-tech fan.

The fan experience at Baylor's McLane Stadium has just taken one giant leap into the 21st century.  New features coming to the stadium include a 5,000 sq. ft. high-definition scoreboard and videoboard, an information ticker wrapping the face of the upper concourse and a cell phone app that allows fans access to immediate replays.

The app also features live video from different angles within the stadium, so even the hardcore fans in the nosebleeds can still get the experience of seeing a game from the 50-yd line.  Fans will not have to worry about their data rates going through the roof because McLane Stadium offers free public WiFi for those in attendance.  

“One of the reasons people stay home is that they can have their big HD TV and they can see replays, and they don’t have to wait in the line to go into the bathroom and their concessions are in their fridge,” said Nick Joos, Baylor’s executive associate athletic director.

“I think this is just a way to bring that experience to the fans. If they want to see that great Bryce Petty touchdown throw again and again they can do that at their seats, whereas the videoboard may only be able to show that one time because it’s on to the next play.”

The Baylor Athletics Official site also offers a live stream as well as some archived video of the construction being done to McLane Stadium.
