The city of Jacksonville and the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars have reached a tentative agreement on how to finance the new scoreboards and other improvements to Everbank Field.

Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown was joined by Jaguars team president Mark Lamping and Gator Bowl CEO Rick Catlett to make the announcement Wednesday at the stadium.

The Jaguars would finance $20 million while city share would be $43 million. City funding would come from the hotel bed tax.
