The Arizona Wildcats have picked a field design for 2013, and it includes "ghost lettering," navy end zones and - of course - a "Block A" logo.

Work crews will install the new $1 million FieldTurf surface at Arizona Stadium over the coming months.

Arizona's new field design will look much like its old one. The iconic "Block A" will stand at midfield, and the end zones will include "ARIZONA" in red. The words "Bear Down," which have been a field presence for decades, will appear - albeit subtly - on the new field. The green-on-green "ghost lettering" is the first of its kind at Arizona Stadium.
