Mississippi State working to improve facilities
STARKVILLE - Mississippi State is spending about $100 million to upgrade its football facilities.
The results are starting to show.
There are cranes, bulldozers and construction workers in the middle of campus - usually humming with activity as work continues on a $75 million renovation to Davis Wade Stadium.
The work will add more than 6,000 seats to the existing stadium, pushing capacity to 61,337. It also includes plans for a second high-definition video board and premium seating. The two-year project will be partially ready for the upcoming season.
Mississippi State recently opened the Leo Seal Jr. Football Complex, a $25 million structure that is 80,000 square feet that houses offices and training facilities.
Athletic director Scott Stricklin says long-range plans include upgrading facilities in baseball, tennis, golf and soccer.
