Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium (Oklahoma) History

The Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium is the Norman, Oklahoma home of the Oklahoma Sooners, one of the Big 12 football powerhouses and a team that tends to be blistering with playmakers on both sides of the ball from season to season. The stadium broke ground in 1921, opened in 1923 and has been the Sooners' home as well as one of the most electrifying venues in college football ever since. It has also been expanded several times, most recently in 2013. The 2013 expansion and renovation made Memorial one of the biggest college stadium in the country, helping to take the whole experience to a completely different level in the process.

But even though it's a state-of-the-art stadium that keeps up with the modern day, its history makes it one of the most unique venues you'll find anywhere. Two years after opening, the stadium was expanded by the addition of 16,000 permanent seats and officially named Memorial Stadium as a tribute to members of the university who had died in World War I. From there, as the Sooners program continued to grow and improve, Memorial Stadium soon became a major part of the local sports scene around Norma, Oklahoma, and that's not something likely to change anytime in the near future. With the Sooners always in the middle of one epic clash or another, you can count on Memorial Stadium to be hopping once again this season.
