CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson, the top-ranked team in the College Football Playoff poll, broke ground on a $55 million football complex Friday the school hopes keeps the program on top.

The 140,000 square foot building will contain a locker room, meeting rooms and coaches’ offices. It will also have areas for strength and conditioning, sports medicine and dining. It will be located next to the team’s indoor practice facility and current practice fields.

Construction will begin in December with a target opening date of February 2017. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said the building will move the entire football program under one roof.

Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said the school is deciding how best to use the WestZone at Memorial Stadium, where football offices and operations are currently, to benefit all athletes.
