Johnny "Red" Floyd Stadium/Horace Jones Field
Officially named Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium/Horace Jones Field in 1968, Floyd Stadium will host its 77th season of Blue Raider football with the 2012 campaign. Set on the northwest end of campus, Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium has undergone a multimillion dollar renovation over the past few years to make it one of the premier facilities in the region and the Sun Belt Conference.
The Blue Raiders are 266-111-13 all-time at Floyd Stadium, including a mark of 25-15 in Sun Belt Conference games.
In addition to the spectator facilities, the stadium complex includes a team meeting room, position meeting rooms, a 10,000 square foot weight room for all Middle Tennessee teams, an academic center for Blue Raider student-athletes, and access to Murphy Athletic Center from the stadium via a walkway. The stadium also allows for further expansion that would provide an increase of approximately 40,000 seats, putting capacity over the 70,000 mark.
