Kansas State University has unveiled their new $65 million football facility.

The Vanier Family Football Complex is the biggest piece in the school's $125 million in athletic facility upgrades at the school and was funded in part by a $20 million donation to the school from the Vanier family. Of the remaining cost, $30 million came from donations to the school with $15 million coming from athletic department revenues.

The school opened up the facility to the players for the first time this week and released a video of the tour. Here are some screenshots of some of the swankiest features.

The players were in awe as they entered the facility.
