LOS ANGELES (AP) -The Los Angeles Coliseum will have a new look, and a new sound, when No. 1 Southern California and No. 5 Ohio State meet Saturday night.
Among the improvements are two high-definition video boards and a state-of-the-art sound system. In addition, the turf and drainage systems have been replaced; the peristyle end has been refurbished and all the plagues at the peristyle end have been renovated; several concession stands have been added; 1,600 seats have been added at field level, raising the capacity to 93,607; trees and bushes have been trimmed; much of the facility has been painted, and a press elevator has been installed.
``These improvements were made at warp speed considering we only got the deal officially done May 14,'' Coliseum general manager Pat Lynch said Thursday. ``The sound and video are the big things. I think it's going to really be noticed. I'm really pleased; everybody's pretty proud of what we did in such a short time.
``It's a coming out party. We're over there tweaking the sound right now.''
Lynch said $4 million was spent on the makeover.
x of USC's six home games have been sold out. The Trojans have played at the Coliseum ever since it was built in 1923.
