Colorado State is moving forward with a new stadium project while cutting $20 million from the proposed budget. The 40,000-seat facility would come at a freshly-revised price tag of $226.5 million and replace the 32,500-seat Hughes Stadium, which opened in 1968.
Local reports indicate the feasibility of the project is up for debate, and Colorado State president Tony Frank expects a decision to be made within the next two months whether or not to move to the next stage of the project.
