Ohio Stadium could soon be the third-largest stadium in college football if all goes as planned. A report from The Columbus Dispatch states that The Ohio State University’s athletic department is going to propose an expansion project that would add 2,500 seats to the Columbus, Ohio venue to the tune of roughly $9 million.
The move, if approved, would make Ohio Stadium the third-largest stadium in college football behind “The Big House” of Michigan Stadium and Penn State’s Beaver Stadium located in Happy Valley. The University of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium and the University of Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium would be next on the list after the renovated Ohio Stadium.

The University of Texas is reportedly looking to expand their Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium to between 115,000 and 125,000.
