Florida universities seek millions for football

To repair Doak Campbell Stadium, Florida State University, which is about to begin a highly anticipated season, is considering taking on $285 million in debt.

It is the third significant public university to look into stadium upgrades as a method to improve its football program in the future. 

A $340 million on-campus stadium has been requested by the University of South Florida 

 while the University of Florida will soon undergo renovations estimated to cost $400 million. 

This week, the State University System Board of Governors will discuss the USF proposal.

The FSU plan will be reviewed by the university's trustees on Friday. 

Discussions regarding the plan's financial viability are anticipated as concerns abound about whether the Seminoles can afford to stay in the ACC.
