The University of Houston's football team will be playing at a new stadium in time for the 2014 season.

The Houston Chronicle reports the board of regents approved a $105 million renovation of Roberston Stadium scheduled to begin in December. Capacity at the renovated stadium is set to expand to 40,000 seats. But that figure could grow to up to 60,000 seats in the future.

Plans are being discussed about where the team will play in the 2013 season.
