Kentucky changed the name of its stadium from Commonwealth Stadium to Kroger Field on Monday, according to a report from the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Buckle up, CFB traditionalists. Your AD is already staring out the window envisioning what his corporate signage might look like. https://t.co/BU0j8Bmcdf— Ryan McGee (@ESPNMcGee) May 1, 2017
That's already going on in college football. Minnesota plays at TCF Bank Stadium, and Miami plays at Hard Rock Stadium. UMass plays at Gillette Stadium, which of course is the home of the New England Patriots.
Sporting News, decided to have a little fun with it. Imagine hearing these stadium names down the line ...
Yeah, we can't either
Little Debbie Saban-Bryant-Denny Stadium
It's inevitable that Saban's name will be attached to Alabama's stadium someday, so why not make some money and put his well-documented favorite treat in front of all that to cash in?
Waffle House presents Jordan-Hare Stadium
Auburn's Gus Malzahn is a well-known fan, and that might give him the inside track on an institution in the South.
Disney Los Angeles Memorial Star Wars Coliseum
George Lucas would appreciate this. We think.
Michigan Stadium by Lululemon
These are the pants Jim Harbaugh wears now, so it's an easy transition.
Neyland Stadium presented by Nationwide
Nike Autzen Stadium
Nike Ohio Stadium
Still too obvious, but what else would you call "The Shoe?"

The Terps must protect this house (and brand).
Sonic Field at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium
Say that out loud five times fast.
Jumpman Kenan Memorial Stadium
Michael Jordan and North Carolina team up. You would have to do a marquee on the side that says, "The ceiling is the roof."
Skyline Nippert Stadium
You either really love or really hate this name for Cincinnati. There's no in between.
The Swamp at Gatorade Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
Surprised this hasn't happened already.
Coca-Cola Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field
Georgia Tech might as well throw a sponsor on top of that.
