AstroTurf is the brand. Just like Coke is a brand. They're playing on the same synthetic surface that Edward jones Dome has in St Louis.

I wonder if this hurts recruiting? WTF wants to play on AT in OKC in November?! I honestly thought the whole AT market had collapsed with the invention of field turf or whatever it's called...I can't believe there are still companies that still make/install that shit
