Bowers Stadium is part of the Athletics Complex on the eastern edge of campus at the intersection of Bowers Boulevard and Sycamore Avenue. It is home to both the SHSU football and track programs.
Originally named Bearkat Stadium, the 14,000-seat home of Bearkat football opened on September 13, 1986 with a 23-6 victory over Montana State. The largest capcity crowd (16,148) was in 1994 when the Bearkats defeated nationally-ranked Alcorn State (48-23) on ABC-TV.
There are three freestanding ticket booths located north, southeast, and southwest of the stadium.
Prior to this stadium, football games and many other campus-wide events were held at historic Pritchett Field.
