UNLV not the only Mountain West Conference school trying to build a stadium

The Denver Post is reporting that Colorado State is working on building an on-campus football stadium. The proposal is for a 42,000-seat, $250 million dollar project.

The Post reports CSU President Tony Frank supports the statement, saying it will help define the campus for years to come.

"I think a well-maintained stadium located on the main campus, now with decades of tradition behind it, would be a great benefit to the university, providing a familiar venue for athletics, graduations, freshman convocations, band days, and other large events," Frank said in a statement.

However, just like the proposal for a football stadium on the campus of UNLV, there are several questions to be answered. And, just like UNLV, the Colorado State plans hinge on securing financing and handling potential traffic problems on game day, the Post reports.
