Part of Texas A&M's Kyle Field imploded for $485 million renovation (VIDEO)

Johnny Manziel wasn't the only Texas A&M product that crashed to the ground this weekend, after big chunk of the university's football stadium was demolished to make way for a $485 million renovation.

Three elevator shafts vanished in a cloud of dust Sunday morning as crews imploded one side of Kyle Field with several thousands pounds of explosives, according to KBTX-TV.

The field — known as the biggest stadium in Texas — dates back to 1905, but permanent seating was not installed until the late 1920s. The demolished section of stadium — which included an old press box, alumni seating and suites — will be replaced with new seating for more than 102,000 fans in time for the 2015 season.

Texas A&M will play Ball State on Sept. 12.
