Boren said stadium could be on next Regents agenda



The structure, which already dominates the east side of campus, is expected to grow in size.

The plan is expected to include bowling in the south end zone, which will fully enclose the stadium for the first time. Upgrading some of the football program's facilities also are planned.

Boren said students can expect the stadium to become even more ingrained to the campus.

“There is a department or two and the university that might need additional space, so we’re looking at moving them into the stadium,” he said. “We’re looking at new areas being built, so, we’re looking at that.”

As far as a price tag for the changes, there isn’t one in place yet. Boren said all of it will be paid for with athletic department revenue and private donations.

“There will not be any tuition and fee money or state money used for the project,” he said. “It will all be self-sustaining from the athletic department.”

It also will require a green light from the Board of Regents. Boren believes there will be a plan to present when the group reconvenes next month in Ardmore.
