Arkansas picks Sportexe as turf manufacturer

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Arkansas' new synthetic turf in Razorback Stadium will be supplied by Sportexe, the same manufacturer that did the Baltimore Ravens' field as well as the field at the Superdome where the New Orleans Saints play.

Both of those fields were ranked in the top half of the league in January of this year when the NFL Players Association released its bi-annual rankings of the NFL stadium fields.

Private gifts to the Razorback Foundation specifically for the field will fund the entire estimated $1.1 million project, which is scheduled to be completed prior to Aug. 1.
