Mackey Question

I know that before the renovation, the seating capacity of Mackey was 14,123. I have noticed it a couple of other times during the season, but just heard on the radio that the attendance for tonight's game against Penn State was 14,565.

My questions: I thought the renovation was going to result in fewer seats, so where did the extra 442 come from? What is the max capacity of Mackey now? Wikipedia says it is 14,240, so do they have standing room seating now?

I've look around on the internet a bit, but not much, and haven't found an answer. Any help would be appreciated!!
