Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, also known as Owen Field or The Palace on the Prairie, is the on-campus football facility on the campus of the University of Oklahoma in Norman, Oklahoma, United States, that serves as the home of the Oklahoma Sooners football team. The official seating capacity of the stadium, following renovations in 2015, is 86,112, making it the 23rd largest stadium in the world, 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 at Austin.
The stadium is a bowl-shaped facility with its long axis oriented north/south, with both the north and south ends enclosed. The south end has only been enclosed since the 2015-2016 off-season, when it was renovated as part of a $160 million project. 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.

  • Boomer Sooner! Always have had great experiences here. I don’t think I’ve ever left a review for a place of business that I’ve done business with for 35 years...that makes me feel as old as I am!!! They’ve done a fantasy job keeping up with the times while keeping many of the elements of the original stadium intact. The prices are high, but not out of proportion to other college football or professional venues.
  • Updated & remodeled. The south updated addition is beautiful. Easy to find your way around. We've enjoyed ourselves every time we visit and have watched this stadium grow since 1975.
