UNIV. OF UTAH HOPES FOR SOME OLYMPIC MAGIC
Published October 12, 1994
The University of Utah has asked the state to approve a $51.8M renovation project of Rice Stadium which would expand its capacity from 32,500 to 50,000. The expansion would also allow the "university to host the 2002 Winter Olympics opening and closing ceremonies should the Games be awarded to Salt Lake next June." If the Games don't go to UT, capacity would be cut to 42,000 (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 10/11).
