COLUMBUS — Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith says plans have been made to expand Ohio Stadium by 2,500 seats in 2014.
The proposal will go before the university’s board of trustees next week. The project would cost $9 million.
Smith said the seats will be added in the South end zone. The expansion would increase the official capacity of Ohio Stadium to 104,829.
