Ohio Stadium has been undergoing a minor facelift this offseason. The Buckeyes have invested nearly $13.7 million in renovations for its south stands and a new synthetic turf surface.
The new turf has been installed and it looks exactly the same as the old turf surface. The south stands project, which will add more than 2,000 seats to the stadium’s capacity, is set to be completed by mid-August.
