COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State University plans to install a larger high-definition scoreboard screen and improved audio equipment as part of $7 million in upgrades at its football stadium.

The school said Tuesday that the new 42-by-124-foot scoreboard at Ohio Stadium will replace an 11-year-old board that measures 30 feet by 90 feet.

Ohio State also plans to replace older speakers, upgrade televisions throughout the stadium and install new ribbon boards to display scores and statistics.

The project beginning April 23 is expected to be finished by early August, before the Buckeyes' first game of the season.
