Georgia State Panthers’ football stadium -- formerly that Atlanta Braves’ Turner Field -- will seat about 23,000 fans. 

When the 2017 college football season kicks off this month, the Panthers will open Georgia State Stadium with one of the biggest video boards in the game.

The 71-foot-by-79-foot screen was installed in 2005 by the Atlanta Braves in what was known as Turner Field.

What was once the world’s largest outdoor high-definition display will ONLY be the eighth largest in college football. Auburn, Texas A&M, Texas, Miami, Arkansas, Southern Cal and Penn State all have larger screens in their stadiums.

The 5,600-square-foot board is lit by more than five million LED lights and is the third-tallest in the NCAA -- only behind Connecticut and Vanderbilt.
