BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) — Officials plan a ground-breaking ceremony for a new sports complex at South Dakota State University in conjunction with the school's football opener against Butler on Aug. 31.

The Sanford-Jackrabbit Athletic Complex will be an indoor practice and human performance facility. It will include an eight-lane, 300-meter track, a synthetic turf field, and space for sports medicine, athletic training, strength and conditioning, physical therapy and offices.

Officials say $29 million has been raised for the project.
