    Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium is home to the University of Oklahoma's NCAA football team, the Sooners. The stadium is also known as Owen Field or The Palace on the Prairie. The stadium is a horseshoe-shaped facility with its long axis oriented north/south, with the north end enclosed and the south end partially enclosed. Visitor seating is in the south end zone and the southern sections of the east side. The student seating sections are in the east stands, surrounding the 350-member Pride of Oklahoma which sits in section 29, between the 20- and 35-yard lines. The Sooners' bench was once located on the east side with the students, but the home bench was moved to the west side in the mid-1990s. The record attendance for the stadium was set during a 2012 home game against Notre Dame, with 86,031 in attendance.

    The stadium opened in 1923 with seating for 16,000 and construction costs of $293,000. The stadium has been revamped with $125 million worth of renovations and has a current seating capacity of 82,112. The first game played at the current stadium site was in 1923, with the Sooners prevailing over Washington University 62–7. When 16,000 permanent seats were built on the west side of the site in 1925, the new stadium was named Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in honor of university students and personnel that died during World War I. The stadium is popularly called Owen Field, but in actuality the field and the stadium are two separate objects with two separate names. The formal reference is to say that a game is played in Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium at Owen Field.
