 Elliott T. Bowers Stadium has undergone a facelift with the removal of the original orange chair back seats installed when the facility first opened for the 1986 Bearkat football season.

A total of 1,040 seats from the west side center sections were disassembled and removed the week of June 11-15.

New wider, more comfortable orange chair back seats will replace the old ones. Installation of the new chair backs is slated for early August in time for Sam Houston's Sept. 8 season opening football game with Incarnate Word.

"This is one more step in our on-going project to keep our athletic facilities at Sam Houston State modern and fan friendly," SHSU director of athletics Bobby Williams said.

A limited number of chair back season tickets remain and will go on sale July 1.

Sam Houston State will play three home games in Bowers Stadium during the 2012 season, hosting Incarnate Word Saturday, Sept. 8 at 6 p.m. for Parents' Weekend; McNeese State Saturday, October 20 for Homecoming; and Southeastern Louisiana Saturday November 3. The final two games both will kickoff at 2 p.m.

The Bearkats also will play football contests in Houston against Texas Southern at the new Dynamo stadium Thursday, September 27, and with SFA in the annual "Battle of the Piney Woods" contest at Reliant Stadium October 6.

For complete information about purchasing Sam Houston State football tickets, please go to www.gobearkats.com/tickets on the web or call the SHSU athletic ticket office at (936) 294-1729. The ticket office at the Ron Mafrige Field House in the south end zone of Bowers Stadium is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
