Score one for the home team

Back in 1929, it cost roughly $250,000 to build Amon Carter Stadium -- what's known today as the lower bowl of seats.

In 1956, the upper deck was added to bring capacity to 46,000.

Now in 2002 comes the latest modification -- a $1 million state-of-the-art scoring and video system located beyond the stands of the north end zone.

Measuring 32 feet wide by 50 feet high, the video system will contain the game clock, team message centers, delay-of-game clock and a ProStar video display board to show live game action and instant replays. With sophisticated graphics and animation, it will give Frog fans real-time game statistics on the team and players and scores from around the nation.

TCU will enjoy the addition thanks to a gift from the David E. Bloxom, Sr. Foundation in honor of the former Horned Frog football standout.
