Orange Bowl to be played on a construction site

Ponca City Now - December 30, 2015 10:57 am

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) – Huge cranes are hovering outside the Orange Bowl stadium. They’re ready to raise the roof – after Thursday’s game.

The national championship semifinal between No. 1 Clemson and No. 4 Oklahoma will be played on a construction site. Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ stadium is undergoing renovations that began nearly a year ago and will continue in 2016, with the topper being a giant canopy to be erected over the seats.

That’s the reason for the 300-foot-tall cranes, which greeted the Orange Bowl teams as they bussed into the stadium for media day.
