Watch: Notre Dame Stadium FieldTurf install in progress

Notre Dame Grass Sale Football

Work continues on replacing the grass field at Notre Dame’s football stadium Wednesday, May 21, 2014, in South Bend, Ind. Notre Dame was selling rolls of sod from its football stadium on a first-come, first-served basis Wednesday after finishing taking online orders for delivery. Notre Dame announced last month it was switching to FieldTurf because of problems with the playing surface in recent seasons. (AP Photo/The Truth, James Buck) GOSHEN OUT MAGS OUT
