Rutgers Stadium Expansion Tour: I

With three consecutive bowl game appearances, victories during the last pair, and a Top 10 national ranking during each of the last two campaigns, demand for increased capacity at Rutgers Stadium is currently at an all-time high. With initial stadium expansion already underway, now provides fans with an in-depth look at the current progress.

Despite the small size - relative to other BCS conferences - of the Big East, the league's 8-2 cumulative bowl record during the past two seasons is good enough for second overall among the nation's top 6 conferences. Rutgers Football has aided in the resurgence of the rejuvenated conference with a pair of wins toward this total, and in doing so, has increased demand for stadium seating much beyond current capacity.

Stadium expansion, with an expected completion by 2009 of August, is well underway, and now provides fans with an up close and in-depth look at the remodeling's current progress.
