Penn State looking to move from Beaver Stadium?

The Penn State Nittany Lions are looking to improve their facilities.

According to a report from ESPN.com, the Nittany Lions are looking at all options for a future home which could include either renovating the iconic Beaver Stadium or finding a new venue for home games altogether.

“Nobody’s trying to either renovate Beaver or build a new stadium just to be doing it,” Penn State athletic director Sandy Barbour told the Associated Press. “There’s a recognized need. I’ve not run into anybody that doesn’t recognize that need.”

Beaver Stadium currently seats  106,572 fans.

For Barbour, a lack of concession options and the outdated bleachers lead to a need for an upgrade. Barbour hopes to see other events — including concerts and potentially hockey games — coming to State College.

While you would obviously like to see the history of Beaver Stadium stay intact, there is always a need to have the newest and best facilities in the nation.

Will the Nittany Lions ever move on from their longtime home? Only time will tell.
