STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma City businessman Bob Funk has made a multi-million dollar pledge to Oklahoma State's stadium improvement program.

Funk's gift is the second largest OSU has received in the campaign. More than $90-million has been raised in gifts, commitments and premium seating associated with stadium improvements -- eclipsing the original $86-million goal.

Funk is CEO of Express Personnel, the nation's 5th largest temporary employment firm. The north side Club Level in Boone Pickens Stadium will be named the Express Personnel Club North in recognition of Funk's gift.

Improvements to the stadium's north side will be complete for the 2006 season.

Funk founded Express Personnel in 1983.
