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.

  • We were challenged to "pack the Palace" and there were people everywhere! It would have been nice to have more gates open to allow a better flow of people into the stadium. Very impressed overall.

  • Spring Game taught me 1 thing. As I watched both during the warm-ups and the game I saw a lot of hands-on personal coaching. Situating a players posture over and over again. And not just the star players, anyone that needed the coaching received it. This kind of teaching creates greater muscle memory and helps the player teach their own bodies which muscles to strengthen and use to the point that it becomes second nature for the athlete. In a word; Masterful.
  • Went here for our first Sooner Saturday with my son. We loved it. It was one of the best times we had. The staff were friendly and the experience will always be remembered. Hope to go again!
