STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Penn State University trustees have approved of a $2 million renovation of the school’s football facilities.

The funding comes two months after incoming coach James Franklin asked for wholesale upgrades to the program’s facilities to compete with the nation’s top-tier programs.

He says the program needs better facilities, branding and technology.

Franklin had talked in May of touch-screen technology that could replace wall photographs, so players can instantly watch game highlights.

Pennlive.com reports that the project approved Friday will upgrade the team meeting room and parts of the Lasch Building.

The improvements include new carpeting, lighting, furniture, finishes and wall graphics.
