Baylor has one of the worst stadiums in all of major college football, but that is about to change. Baylor graduate and billionaire Drayton McLane Jr. has made the largest capital gift in Baylor history to make this waterfront stadium a reality. McLane made his money in the logistics industry. McLane took over the family business and turned it into an empire. McLane eventually sold it to Sam Walton (Yes, that Sam Walton=Wal-Mart) for 10.4 million shares of Wal-Mart and $50 million dollars. McLane was giving name rights for his donation, but asked the stadium be named Baylor Stadium. Baylor Stadium will be on-campus and hold 45,000 fans with the capacity to expand to 55,000. The school said with a successful spring fundraising campaign, Baylor Stadium could host the first game of the 2014 season.
