STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Penn State officials say they’d prefer to renovate Beaver Stadium instead of rebuilding the 107,000-seat facility.
University Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Athletic Director Phil Esten made the comments Thursday at a luncheon with members of the Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County.READ MORE: Remember, Reflect At Tree Of Life: Commemorating The 11 Lives Lost 3 Years Ago In Synagogue Shooting

Esten says building a new stadium isn’t off the table. But officials say it isn’t the goal.
