    Floyd Casey Stadium is an outdoor college football stadium located in Waco, Texas near the campus of Baylor University. It is home to the Baylor Bears football team of the Big 12 Conference. Floyd Casey Stadium has been open since 1950 and has a seating capacity of 50,000. Originally named Baylor Stadium, the stadium was renamed Floyd Casey Stadium after longtime University supporter and trustee Carl B. Casey and his wife Thelma contributed $5 million of an $8 million renovation project in honor of his father Floyd.

    History

    From 1902 to 1925, with the exception of 1906 when football was banned on campus because it was deemed too violent, the Bears played most of their games at Carroll Field, an on-campus facility (an unknown number of games were also played at the old Cotton Palace during this period). The Bears played at the Cotton Palace from 1926-29 before returning to Carroll Field from 1930-35. The team moved off the main campus for good in 1936 when it began calling the newly built Waco Stadium home. Waco Stadium was renamed Municipal Stadium in 1942, and it was where Baylor played through 1949 except for a break from 1943-44 because of the war effort. During the 1970s, the Letterman's Lounge was built on the stadium's west side with funds provided by former athletes. That facility received face lifts in both 1995 and 2006. Baylor unveiled a new synthetic turf playing surface, the Prestige System, in 2004 after six seasons of play on the natural SportGrass turf. From 1972 through 1997 Floyd Casey stadium featured an AstroTurf playing surface.
