Baylor is one step closer to new stadium

The Baylor Board of Regents have approved plans to build a $250 million on campus stadium along the Brazos river.

The original plans, which we originally told you about a few months ago, are impressive to say the least. Some of the unique features include a canopy that will provide shade to about half in attendance, as well as a bridge over the Brazos river connecting the stadium to campus.

While it is not final yet, city officials will cast a final vote on August 7th.

The Bears hope to have the stadium, which will seat about 45,000, ready for kickoff in 2014.
