There are big-screen TVs, and then there’s this.
How do you sell teenagers on your football program? Let them play Madden NFL 16 on the scoreboard at your home stadium.
Auburn did just that.
Auburn linebackers coach Travis Williams and Tigers defensive end commit David Marshall played Madden against one another on Jordan-Hare Stadium’s $13.9 million video scoreboard, which measures out to be 190-by-57 feet, according to AL.com’s Brandon Marcello.
Not surprisingly, one of them played with the Carolina Panthers and MVP candidate Cam Newton, who won the Heisman Trophy at Auburn in 2010 while also leading the team to the national championship.
Williams tweeted out a video of the game, reminding all those who follow him which football stadium takes claim to the biggest scoreboard in college football.
As did Marshall, with an “OMG” comment.
Even recent Auburn enrollee Antwuan Jackson got in on the action, and he gave everyone a quick peek at the audience, which included some of the top recruits in the nation.
