Oklahoma Memorial Stadium

The Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium (also known as Owen Field or The Palace on the Prairie) is the on-campus football facility for the University of Oklahoma Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma. The official seating capacity of the stadium, following recent renovations, is 82,112, making it the 15th largest college stadium in the United States and the second largest in the Big 12 Conference (behind Darrell K Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium at the University of Texas).

The record attendance for the stadium was set during a 2012 home game against Notre Dame, with 86,031 in attendance.

The stadium is the site of Spring Commencement exercises for the university.

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.
