McLane Stadium, the new $260 million Baylor University football stadium on the banks of the Brazos River, will be complete in plenty of time for the Bears' season opener on Aug. 31, 2014. Officials say the progress was about 80 percent complete as of May 1.

The first game at the stadium will be a high school contest on Aug. 29 between Aledo and Cedar Park.
