“The Nevada football team enters a new era this fall with first-year Head Coach Jay Norvell, and fans of the Wolf Pack will not only see a new product on the field but continued improvements to Mackay Stadium. A year after an $11.5 million renovation to the 51-year-old stadium, the Wolf Pack will provide a new grand entrance on the north side of Mackay – the Donald L. Jensen Plaza – in time for kickoff to the 2017 football season.
Jensen made a leadership gift to the project. The owner and CEO of Jensen Precast, he has been a longtime friend of the University, providing support to campus projects and initiatives for more than 20 years. Additional support for the project has been provided by James ’63 (premedical) and Elaine Colgan ’63 (elementary education), and Nick ’79 (political science) and Debbie Rossi.
The community-led project is further sup-ported by thousands of Wolf Pack fans who have purchased personalized bricks to leave their legacy in a stadium that has provided countless memories over the years. More than 60 percent of Wolf Pack fans enter the stadium on gameday through the north entrance. Jensen Plaza comes complete with new ticketing facilities and concession/merchandising opportunities to better accommodate fans during Nevada games.”
