A sinkhole has swallowed a corner section of a college football field in Tennessee.
The hole initially opened up where the football field meets the track at Austin Peay State University’s Governors Stadium.
It started out small – about 3ft by 5ft – but crews have been forced to dig deeper to find bedrock in order to properly repair it, The Leaf-Chronicle reported.
Workers discovered the hole after a construction project to replace the stadium’s main building began.
The 10,000-seat stadium in Clarksville opened in 1946.
Mike Jenkins, the superintendent for the construction project, told the newspaper that officials added contingency funding for sinkhole remediation.
He said: “You never know to what extent you’re going to run into them, but we know that Montgomery County, and Austin Peay State University specifically, is famous for sinkholes.”
Mr Jenkins said the hole will be filled with rock and concrete.
