For the seventh straight year, battle lines have been drawn at Toyota Stadium...for the FCS National Championship.

FRISCO, Texas (WKBN) – Bo Pelini’s YSU Penguins arrived in Texas Wednesday afternoon, gearing up for Saturday’s FCS National Championship Game against James Madison.

Aside from the Penguins and Dukes preparing over the last several weeks, there’s been plenty of other work to be done in the Lonestar State.

For the seventh straight year, battle lines have been drawn at Toyota Stadium, which is the home of FC Dallas in Major League Soccer.

The field prep took approximately four days. All told, the NCAA sent just over 250 gallons of paint to complete the project.

End zones are customized for both teams in their respective team colors.

Saturday’s kickoff is slated for 12 p.m. at Toyota Stadium. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN2.
