Published August 17, 1995
Unlike their professional brethren, the Univ. of Houston plans on extending its lease at the Astrodome. Houston AD Bill Carr notes their lease ends after this year, but he expects to begin discussions soon and hopes to get a multi-year agreement. The Cougars have played at the Astrodome since 1965 (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 8/17)....Univ. of Maryland officials expect the second phase of renovation on Byrd Stadium to be completed by September 1. Improvements include a new upper deck on the North side of the stadium that brings seating capacity to 48,000. The stadium will also have new restrooms and concession stands. The total cost is $42.2M (Kevin Seifert, WASHINGTON TIMES, 8/17).
