Missouri has taken a big step in the renovation of Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the stands and seating in the south end zone are completely gone, making for quite the weird image for Tigers fans looking into the stadium. Check it out:

Construction on the stadium began last week. The renovations will cost $98 million, will provide state-of-the-art training facilities for Missouri, and will add premium seating opportunities and gameday enhancements for fans.
The university’s board of curators approved the project in August.
“This project would not be possible without the generosity of our donors, and we are very grateful for their support of Mizzou,” Missouri chancellor Alexander Cartwright said in a statement at the time the project was announced. “As an SEC institution, this project will allow us to remain competitive in the top athletic conference in the country. Athletics continues to be one avenue that brings our campus together and to inform people across the nation about the quality of education and the opportunities that are available to students who choose to make MU their academic home.”
The renovations are scheduled to be completed in August of 2019, putting the new Faurot Field on track to be ready for business when the Tigers football season begins that fall.
