PHOTOS: Turner Field, former home of the Braves, looks gloriously ready for college football
The Georgia State Panthers are set to kick off their season in their new stadium, and it looks fantastic.
Georgia State purchased Turner Field after the Braves left for Cobb County and SunTrust Park, and the school has been renovating the former baseball field ever since.
Georgia State Stadium is now set to host its first college football game Thursday night when the Tennessee State Tigers come to Atlanta. The facility looks incredible and should be a fun venue for GSU.
Here is a look at the renovated stadium:
Mike Conti with 92.9 The Game reported on Twitter that GSU has sold out tonight’s contest:
Georgia State announces that their home opener tonight at what used to be Turner Field is sold out.
