Auburn upped the arms race in college football by grabbing the title as holders of the largest video board in college football with a new display in the south end zone of Jordan-Hare Stadium. Along with the video board, a new sound system and ribbon boards on the upper deck were installed. The total cost of the replacement was approximately $14 million. While the board is functional for Auburn's season opener, the back of the board will not be finished until midseason after quality concerns about the banners on the back.

Texas A&M's two-year, nearly half a billion dollar expansion of Kyle Field is being completed for the 2015 season. After last season, the entire west sideline of the stadium was demolished and in its stead a new, three-tiered stand has finished the renovation.

Along with the finished renovation, the deceased Reveilles were reburied in a new cemetery at the updated stadium after being temporarily moved for the expansion. Since the Reveilles were traditionally buried with a view of the stadium's scoreboard, a small scoreboard was added outside the stadium "just in case" the mascots can not see the score.
