Excerpt from the Register-Mail:
Extensive off-season renovations have made Knox Collegeâ€™s Knosher Bowl a showplace.
Saturday it will be time to put on the show.
Coach Andy Gibbonâ€™s 12th Prairie Fire team will sprint onto the new FieldTurf surface for a 1 p.m. opener against Eureka College energized by what basically is a new playing facility.
â€œEven for some of us slow guys, it makes us feel faster,â€ said senior defensive end Tighe Burke.
â€œThe fact that the college has spent a great deal of money on the football program gets us really excited.
â€œItâ€™s awesome. Itâ€™s a lot of fun to play on.â€
Fans attending Saturdayâ€™s game will certainly notice the glittering new playing surface, the added sideline space for players, new goal posts, new scoreboard, new fencing, new entrances and the lowered north berm of the bowl.
