NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Along with the players, the world’s largest center-hung television display in motor sports history will be at the center of all the action at the Battle at Bristol.

It’s the ultimate home theater, fitting of its name, “Colossus.”

The screen will be used for fans to watch the Battle at Bristol game and also display the score.

It features four LED screens, each of which measures 5 feet tall and nearly 63 feet wide. To give you some perspective, it takes more than 1,100 50-inch TVs combined to even compare in size.

A modern marvel and wonder in its own right, Colossus will be on display for college football’s biggest game between UT and Virginia Tech.

It weighs more than 500 tons, including more than 400 tons of steel in the four support towers. That’s comparable to the same weight as nearly 2,000 college football goal posts.

It took about six months to build the colossal television screen.

News 2 will broadcast the Battle at Bristol game Saturday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. CST. Click here for full coverage of the Battle at Bristol.
