UNIV. OF UTAH HOPES FOR SOME OLYMPIC MAGIC

     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).
