Ryan Field isn't the only Northwestern stadium getting an upgrade in the video-board department.

The school announced that Welsh-Ryan Arena would also be receiving some brand-new video boards this summer. There will be four new video boards in total: a pair of screens that hang over the center of the court and one each on the walls at the east and west sides of the stadium. The middle boards will cover 280 square feet, while the others will measure 238 square feet.

"The new videoboards are going to take the atmosphere at Welsh-Ryan Arena to another level," head coach Chris Collins said in the school's release. "This is another great step by our administration in showing their commitment to making a great gameday experience for both our student-athletes and our fans."

The company installing the boards has also installed video boards at the Breslin Center at Michigan State and Ohio Stadium at Ohio State as well as ones at other college and professional stadiums.

The project is in conjunction with the new video board going up at Ryan Field, also set to be completed this summer.

Here are some renderings of the improvements provided by Northwestern:
