BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota State University has scheduled an open house for its new $65 million stadium.

The Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium is replacing the 50-year-old Coughlin-Alumni Stadium. Construction on the 19,000-seat facility began in 2014 and wrapped up this summer. The Jackrabbits football team began practicing in the stadium earlier this month.

The open house is 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27. Fans will get discounts on concessions items and can watch the team practice for an hour.

The stadium officially opens Sept. 8, when it hosts a concert by country artists Luke Bryan, Little Big Town and Lee Brice. The first football game in the new stadium is Sept. 10, against Drake.
