Michigan Stadium isn't the only iconic Big Ten football stadium introducing new features for the 2011 football season. Penn State's Beaver Stadium added several significant upgrades, including a new entry gate (Gate F) and eight new restroom facilities. The improvements began immediately following the 2010 season and were completed in two phases, according to the school. Watch a tour of the new additions here.

Here's what says about the new additions:

"The new entry – Gate F – is located near Gate A on the East side of the stadium.  Designed to accommodate 6,000-8,000 patrons, Gate F will be a tremendous asset on gamedays, allowing some fans who sit on the East side and previously have entered at Gate E, a smoother entry into the stadium.  Penn State students will continue to enter Beaver Stadium at Gate A.

The most noticeable changes inside the stadium have occurred in the lower sections of the East, West and North seating areas. In the East and West, the first three rows of seats from goal line to goal line were removed and replaced with five large, pre-cast sections that will permit additional ADA spectators and companions to watch the Nittany Lions from a great vantage point. The pre-cast sections are approximately eight feet wide, to allow spectator traffic flow with the new ADA and companion seating."
