Looks like WVU, but they've got the visting section occupying what's currently the student seating at Nippert.
It'll be interesting to hear the presser, because I'm wondering where the $60m in cost is coming from. That seems like an awful lot of cash to just knock down a pressbox and add a suite deck to the visiting sideline.
Over at Bearcat Banter, the discussion is that the new trend should be towards improving the gameday experience to compete with 1080P home theaters, etc. The goal shouldn't be to throw tons of seats in and try to pack more people into a smaller area but, rather, to offer a better experience that draws the 35-40k hardcore UC fans to the game every week.
