As part of the major renovation of Kyle Field, Texas A&M also rebuilt the Bright Football Complex, and the results are extremely impressive.

The Bright Complex sits in the south end zone of Kyle Field and has undergone a 36,000 square-foot overhaul that is supposed to modernize and “create the most forward-thinking, technologically advanced” facility in the country, according to the program. Everything from the locker room to the players’ lounge to the sports medicine facility has been upgraded.

The total cost of the project is a whopping $20.8 million. Take a look at the photos, provided by A&M.

Here's what the entrance to the Bright Complex looks like:

As you can see, A&M isn't playing around. These upgraded faciities are up there with the best in the nation. This boosts everything associated with the program from team morale to health and especially to recruiting. It would be tough for any recruit to visit a complex like this and say no to Kevin Sumlin and company.

You can get an even closer look at the new complex and locker room in the videos below. 

A&M will open its season on the road at South Carolina on Aug. 28. The re-opening of Kyle Field will come the following weekend on Sept. 6 against Lamar.
