CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami is trying to get its football team a lighted practice field and other upgraded facilities.


The school will unveil what it calls the Football Victory Fund later this week. It's a $7 million project that will allow for the construction of an artificial turf practice facility, a new dining area for Miami's 400 athletes and four cold-water recovery pools that school officials say are "necessary for the hot and humid climate of South Florida."


The Associated Press obtained an advance copy of the plans. Construction timetables hinge on the rate of fundraising.


Earlier this year, the school opened the $15 million Schwartz Center for Athletic Excellence, a facility that includes meeting rooms, academic areas, locker room space and training facilities.
