WACO (AP) – Baylor University officials have five stadium builders working on proposals for a new football stadium being considered for the Baylor campus in Waco.

Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw tells the Waco Tribune-Herald that the Kansas City, Mo.-based Populous architectural firm has the five working to come up with more precise cost proposals for the stadium.

The stadium being considered for a 90-acre Brazos River front site on campus would replace 62-year-old Floyd Casey Stadium. The 50,000-seat stadium is two miles southwest of the Baylor campus.

Baylor officials have warned that the project depends on the results of a feasibility study and whether Baylor can privately raise about $250 million.
