LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — ULL athletic director Bryan Maggard says Cajun Field will undergo $15 million in renovations and improvements because of a local hospital’s decision to provide the largest philanthropic gift in the history of the Ragin’ Cajuns athletic department.

The donation by Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center will help finance suites, a club level with outdoor seating, loge boxes, and press box at the university’s 50-year-old football stadium.

The hospital also will receive naming rights for the football venue, which will be called Cajun Field at Our Lady of Lourdes Stadium.
