ASU's Sun Devil Stadium is where the football team plays its games.

The Arizona Board of Regents this morning gave its approval to the final phase of the Sun Devil Stadium Renovation Project. The third phase will finish the east and north end of the stadium, including the replacement of concessions, utilities and seating. The $268 million project is about $12 million more expensive than expected.

Morgan Olsen is ASU's chief financial officer and said unexpected soil excavation and replacement, and lower bowl deterioration contributed to the increased cost.
