The University of Alabama System Board of Trustees has been discussing a possible expansion for Bryant-Denny Stadium.

At a meeting Thursday, the Properties Committee approved stage one of a proposed expansion.

That means university officials can do a feasibility study to determine where to expand the stadium and how it much it would cost.

Speculation has centered on closing the South End Zone, but UA spokeswoman Debbie Lane said the decision would depend on the outcome of the study.

No word on who will conduct the study or how long it would take.

Lane said the demand for Alabama football tickets is at an all-time high.

The proposal goes before the full trustee board Friday for approval.
