Floyd Casey Stadium is an outdoor football stadium used exclusively as the home field of the Baylor University Bears football team. The stadium is located on the Baylor campus in Waco, Texas. Formerly known as Baylor Stadium, the name change occurred in 1988 after the Casey family donated $5 million in honor of their late father, Floyd. Visitors to Floyd Casey Stadium are struck by Grant Teaff plaza, which wraps all the way around Floyd Casey Stadium, and features a statue of Grant Teaff, Baylor’s legendary football coach who led the Bear’s to two Southwest Conference titles.
Floyd Casey Stadium was first opened in 1950 as Baylor Stadium. It has seen various upgrades and expansions over the years. In the ‘90s, the Letterman’s Lounge was added to the west side of the stadium, providing a beautiful and comfortable area for former athletes to support the football team. The ‘90s saw updates to the Floyd Casey Stadium as well as the opening of the Carl and Thelma Casey Athletic Center with locker rooms, training facilities, and offices. The 21st century has seen the addition of state of the art video and audio projects, luxury suites and a new press box. Designated solely as the home of the Baylor football program, Floyd Casey Stadium lives up to that billing, providing the Bears with a facility they can certainly be proud of.
Floyd Casey Stadium holds 50,000 spectators. As visitors approach the stadium and walk through Grant Teaff Plaza and along the “I Believe” walkway, they’ll be impressed with this beautiful homage to Baylor athletics history.

Floyd Casey Stadium 1 1
Good Venue Hard to not enjoy a game when RG3 is on the field. Stadium is older but not a bad seat in the venue. West side is alumni and donors. East side is students, general fans and visitors. Great place to watch a college football game in Texas. December 12, 2011
