BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Plans for a south end zone expansion of Tiger Stadium have cleared their first hurdle.

LSU Athletic Director Joe Alleva tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/wWZ6mo ) Monday, the Tiger Athletic Foundation board voted unanimously last week to proceed with the project.

While some details are still tentative, Alleva said the plan calls for building what will essentially be a freestanding structure that will wrap around the south end of Tiger Stadium and connect the existing east and west upper decks.

The addition would include a lower level containing 4,000 club seats, two levels of suites totaling 60 in all with seating for 24 people in each, and a 1,500-seat upper deck topping the entire addition.

If the expansion goes as Alleva described, Tiger Stadium would have a total capacity of nearly 99,500.
