TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - University of Alabama fans won't have to make it to a football game this season to get inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The home of the Crimson Tide football team will be open every day of the week through a $65 million expansion. The South End Zone Market will let visitors to walk under the bleachers to the goal posts or grab a snack from eateries that will be open year-round.
Alabama administrators hope the area can be used for stadium tours for prospective students and their parents. And the athletic department plans to offer twice-daily tours of the stadium for $5.
Alabama athletic director Mal Moore said he wants the stadium to act as welcome center for campus.
