WTAMU Cuts Ribbon at Stadium, Unveils White Buffalo

West Texas A&M University cut the ribbon on Buffalo Stadium Friday, unveiling the white buffalo’s new home.

On Friday, students, media, dignitaries, and athletes joined together for the ribbon cutting at Buffalo Stadium. The stadium opened to the public for the first time since the $38.8 million construction project was first launched in May 2018.

Among the highlights of the event was the unveiling of the famous white buffalo statue at the stadium. The buffalo was created by Jack King Hill and was stationed in front of Kimbrough Memorial Stadium before being moved to its new location. The nine-foot-tall statue will sit on the south side of the stadium.

The first game at the stadium will be played in the evening of Saturday, September 7th.
