KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Tennessee has made several improvements to Neyland Stadium in time for the September 8 home opener against Georgia State.

It will be harder to get lost in the massive stadium with the placement of "you are here" maps throughout.

UT also has improved cell phone reception in the big bowl and installed more family restrooms with diaper-changing tables.

Flat-screen TVs have replaced boxed sets on the lower level.

Don't like the hot dog? The concession stands will have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

An ongoing project is upgrading lighting in the concourses.

The changes were inspired by Vols fans. They spring from a fan survey administered by Dr. Robin Hardin, an associate professor in the UT Sport Management program.
