Almost a year after the University of Iowa received the green light to start making improvements on Kinnick Stadium, Iowa State University wants a similar treatment for Jack Trice Stadium.

ISU requested that the state Board of Regents consider the approval for the purchase of a new video scoreboard from Daktronics Inc., for the south end zone of Trice. Other enhancements, such as a ribbon-board and improvements to the sound system, are included in the purchase.

The regents authorized ISU to proceed with the planning for improvements to Trice in February. The planning included replacing and renovating the existing south end zone seating, upgrading the south end zone concourse infrastructure, upgrading the stadium south video board and sound system components, and constructing additional premium seating, according to the proposal.

The scoreboard and sound system in the south end zone that Iowa State wishes to replace was purchased in 2002, and it would like the replacements to be similar to the north end zone scoreboard and sound system, which was implemented in 2011.
