The artist renderings were done by Populous, the company overseeing the $175-million expansion project.

According to Texas, the premium loge boxes will have “double counter space, four movable rolling chairs, all-inclusive food and soft drinks, personal storage and refrigerator.”

The field club suites will be “As close as you can be to the action without a helmet!,” according to Texas’ website.

Athletic director Chris Del Conte has already secured $80 million from eight families for eight new suites that will go on both sides of the stadium’s new scoreboard. The project has 94 loge boxes ranging in price from $150,000 to $500,000, Del Conte said in February. At the time, UT fundraisers had already sold 82.
