A week away from CFP title game, Levi's Stadium grass looks awful
The offenses in Monday afternoon’s Redbox Bowl weren’t exactly tearing things up, as Oregon escaped with a 7-6 victory over Michigan State.
However, one thing did get torn up — the field at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Now, normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal, but the stadium hosts the College Football Playoff National Championship Game a week from today.
As you can see below, the grass doesn’t look great as the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers head west for the big-time showdown:

There’s still time for the stadium crew to get the playing surface playable again, but that might require a whole new field of grass.
The Crimson Tide and Tigers will have to be careful when they take the field at the San Francisco 49ers’ home stadium in a week’s time.
