Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A $250,000 video board going into the scoreboard at Malosky Stadium on the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) campus should be completed by week's end, that according to the construction crews responsible for the project.

Crews were done with two of the larger panels by mid-afternoon on Tuesday, with one more large panel and three smaller panels yet to be installed.

The hope was that all panels would be up by the end of the day Tuesday and that the wiring could be completed on Wednesday and Thursday, with the entire project expected to be done on Friday.

The 22-by-12 foot video board came via an anonymous donation to the UMD athletics department, and athletics director Josh Berlo has called it a massive advancement for fan experience at Bulldogs football games.
