South Carolina raising season-ticket prices by $45 wire reports

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Football ticket prices are going up at South Carolina.

The school announced a $45 increase to season ticket prices for 2013, raising the cost to $365 a seat for the Gamecocks seven-game schedule. The school said Thursday it has not raised football season tickets since 2008.

Athletic director Ray Tanner said the additional revenue will help fund about $53 million in building new facilities and upgrading existing buildings. Among those projects approved by the University of South Carolina's board of trustees were a $17.5 million football practice facility and outdoor practice fields to replace ones currently across from Williams-Brice Stadium.

Funds were also approved to improve the plaza area around the football stadium and construct a building for lockers, a weight room and video room next to soccer's Stone Stadium.
