The Mercer football team will take the field Saturday for the first time in decades and it will all be in a new 10,000-seat stadium.

Athletic Director Kim Cole says: "The most exciting thing about the stadium to me is that there is really not a bad seat in the whole house. Everywhere you sit is going to be right on top of the action. That's probably the best part about it."

He says he wants fans to enjoy both the big picture and the little details of the new stadium.

"Attention to detail, the brick, everything is nice," said Cole. "The concourse signs are well-lit, they are nicely done. Those are areas that we could have cut back a little bit but we really spent the extra dime and really made it top first-class."
