SOUTH BEND — Three tall buildings loom beyond the walls of Notre Dame Stadium. The classic bowl in the football stadium looks much as it has in recent years, minus the traditional redwood benches.

Those wooden benches have all been replaced with steel benches covered in blue vinyl.

There's premium seating, a 96-by-54 foot video screen on the south wall, "ribbon" video boards, enhanced wifi service, a narrow new tunnel for the visiting team and living "green" roofs. 

This is not your grandfather's Notre Dame Stadium.

That much was evident Friday during a tour for news media of the $400 million Campus Crossroads project that added three buildings to the exterior of the 87-year-old football stadium, as well as premium fan seating atop those buildings.
