They have a new roof and new turf to use starting with Saturday's preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys. But this is the final year of their lease at the stadium, and their future beyond that is unclear.

A six-figure donation to Mayo High School's booster club could start something of a turf war among the city's high schools.
The Rochester School Board on Tuesday unanimously approved a donation that will see the top-of-the-line Metrodome artificial turf installed at Mayo Field for the upcoming fall sports season.
