Feast your eyes on this stadium rendering — which USF points out is for "discussion purposes only."

  • Still.

Driving the news: USF is considering five sites in an aggressive pursuit of a new stadium, studying things like proximity to student housing and potential for events other than football. They are:

  • Southwest corner of Fowler Avenue and Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.
  • Intramural fields near the Juniper-Poplar residence hall and the lake.
  • The MOSI site.
  • Fowler Field, where the band practices.
  • Sycamore Fields near the athletic district.

What's next: Michael Kelly, vice president for athletics, told USF trustees this week that a new stadium could be finished in time for the 2026 season if the "ball bounces the right way."
