STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State officials are looking at renovating rather than replacing Beaver Stadium at the central Pennsylvania university’s main campus.

Athletic director Sandy Barbour said Monday that a final decision hasn’t been made, but she said “it’s very, very clear to me from the analysis that’s been done … that renovation is the direction that we need to head in.”

Officials expect a facilities master plan to be completed by an architecture firm late this summer.

Barbour has long said that the university preferred the idea of renovating the 107,000-seat stadium built in 1960, although that might require some reduction in seating capacity. She told reporters at the APSE Regional Conference that it’s too early to say when such work might be done.
