EAST LANSING (AP) – Michigan State University has dedicated a $24.5 million addition to Spartan Stadium.

The North End Zone Complex is a 50,000-square-foot addition, and the school says that 600 donors turned out for Monday’s ceremonial opening.

Ex-All-America offensive lineman Flozell Adams gave $1.5 million for Michigan State’s new locker room, which is named in honor of his later mother Rachel Adams.

The eighth-ranked Spartans start the 2014 season Friday night against visiting Jacksonville State.

Spartan Stadium opened as College Field in 1923 and now has a capacity of about 75,000.
