PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Rutgers football stadium has a new name.

For the next 10 years, it’s going to be known as High Point Solutions Stadium.

The university formally announced Tuesday the New Jersey-based information technology company acquired the naming rights to the 54,454-seat facility.

Rutgers President Richard McCormick says the deal will provide new revenue for the athletic program. It’s not immediately known how much money the school will receive.

Rutgers is the birthplace of college football, with the first game being played against Princeton in 1869.
