(State College) -- Penn State trustees have approved a $2 million renovation of the school's football facilities.

The funding comes two months after incoming coach James Franklin asked for wholesale upgrades to the program's facilities to compete with the nation's top-tier programs.

Franklin had talked in May of touch-screen technology that could replace wall photographs, so players can instantly watch game highlights.

The project will upgrade the team meeting room and parts of the Lasch Building.

The improvements include new carpeting, lighting, furniture, finishes and wall graphics.
