Construction of Baylor's new stadium underway

They'll be plenty of storylines to talk about as the 2013 season approaches, but one thing Baylor will have on its mind this fall is that it will be their last year playing at Floyd Casey Stadium. 

The Bears will be moving into a pristine new stadium along the Brazos River moving on campus after playing at Floyd Casey which is four miles away from campus.

Here's a quick glimpse at the early stages of the new place with construction now underway.

 

It is going to have a capacity of 45,000 with the option to expand to 55,000 in the future. How about new suites? Check, 39 of those along with 74 loge boxes and 1,200 outdoor club seats, as well.

Baylor has plenty to sell recruits given their recent success on the field and adding a brand new stadium certainly won't hurt in that respect.

And if you're looking to have your name on stadium or leave a personalized message, Baylor has you covered through their stadium brick campaign. Donations range from $175 for a 4" by 8" brick all the way up to $1,250 which will get you a 8' by 8" South Plaza Premium Paver.

If you've yet to see what the new stadium is going to look like, Baylor has put together a slick website at Baylor-Stadium.com with all the details.  When the images like the one above come to fruition, home-field advantage will be squarely in the Bears' corner and that's not always something you can say about the old digs.
