Urban Meyer tweets photo of Ohio Stadium expansion
Like several other stadiums across the nation, Ohio Stadium has undergone several renovations since the the 2013 season. Last month, the team added new field turf and unveiled renderings of a new locker room. The one fans will notice the most is nearing completion, and that’s the addition of approximately 2,600 seats to the south end zone.
The new seats almost close off the stadium’s iconic Horseshoe, but they also push capacity close to 105,000, which moves it ahead of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium for third largest in the nation. Only Big Ten rivals Michigan (107,501) and Penn State (106,572) have higher capacities.
