DALLAS — The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board on Thursday approved a proposal by the University of North Texas System for a 28,000-seat football stadium that will be financed in part with $38 million of student fee revenue bonds.

The stadium will be built at the university's main campus in Denton, about 30 miles north of Dallas. The facility, which is to be open for the 2011 football season, will replace a stadium built in 1952.
