HOUSTON (CBS Houston) When one considers the success of the Texans, one perhaps considers that they are a football franchise that is larger than life. Soon, they will have tools that will now help them to literally appear “large and in charge” on the football field at Reliant Stadium.

On Wednesday, the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation gave the green light for the purchase of two high definition LED displays.

The new LED scoreboards will stand more than 52 feet tall and span 277 feet wide. As of now, Houston is the only NFL team without a digital scoreboard. With the new boards averaging a cost of $15.5 million, the boards will be installed where the current scoreboards are located, just in time for the 2013 NFL season and the 2014 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™.

Texans owner Bob McNair and the Houston Livestock Show and Road would reportedly pay for the new displays and then be reimbursed by Reliant.

With successful seasons from the Houston Texans and the growing appeal of the city of Houston as well as talk of Houston hosting the Super Bowl, many feel that a football fan’s football game experience would be enhanced by a new state-of-the-art scoreboard at Reliant Stadium.
