Southern getting new scoreboard

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Jaguar Nation will have a new scoreboard to check the scores during home games this year.

The new LED video display will be installed in October at Southern University's A.W. Mumford Stadium. Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota has partnered with Southern to do the installation.

“We're thrilled about this partnership opportunity with Daktronics and the SU System Foundation, and about continuing to enhance the fan experience for Jaguar football,” said Southern University Director of Athletics William Broussard.

The display features a 15HD pixel layout to provide excellent image clarity and contrast to live video and replays. The display measures 18 feet high by 48 feet wide and aside from showing full video can also be sectioned into different windows to highlight graphics, animations, sponsor messages, statistics, and other game information.
