The Baylor Bears currently play their home football games at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco, Texas. The stadium was completed in 1950 and cost roughly $1.5 million to build.
The program is enjoying a renaissance under coach Art Briles, however, and that includes a Heisman Trophy winner in quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Simply put, a 63,282-square foot stadium just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
Thus, the school has committed $250 million to building a state-of-the-art, 860,000 square foot beauty that is scheduled to be completed by August 30, 2014.
Following is a comparison of the old stadium vs. the new one.
