Lucas Oil Stadium Hosting the Final Four this Weekend

Lucas Oil Stadium, the home of the Indianapolis Colts, is playing host to the NCCA's Final Four this weekend.

Lucas Oil Stadium has been the home of the Indianapolis Colts since 2008 and therefore has welcomed countless fans dressed in blue, but this weekend it will be turned blue for a different reason.

The Stadium will be hosting the NCCA's Final Four later today, as well as the National Championship game on Monday night.  This is what teams have been playing for all season, including throughout March Madness.  It all ends in Indy this weekend.  Kentucky will take on Wisconsin, while Michigan State will take on Duke for the right to advance to play on Monday night.

Considering the fact that the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats wear blue and will be sure to travel well, along with the fact that Duke wears blue as well, Lucas Oil Stadium will be turned blue this weekend, though not for the Colts.

Here are some pictures of what Lucas Oil looks like currently as they prepare for the Final Four - it's hard to picture that as a football stadium, but indeed it is - and in a few months, the Colts will be playing there once again (it can't come soon enough).
