Iowa State to use $25M donation to make Jack Trice true bowl

Posted: Updated:
AMES (AP) -

Iowa State says it will use a $25 million donation to close the south end zone of Jack Trice Stadium and make it a true bowl.

Athletic director Jamie Pollard says the gift from Reiman Publications founders Roy and Bobbi Reiman will also allow the school to create an "inspiring campus entrance."

The end zone set to be closed faces University Boulevard, the road many use to enter campus. It currently has a set of bleachers between a pair of grassy hills.

Final plans for the project have yet to be developed. But Pollard says the school hopes to be completed by the start of the 2015 season.

The project will go in front of the Iowa Board of Regents for approval in February.
