Jack Trice Stadium is the football home to the Iowa State Cyclones who compete in the Big 12 Conference. It opened in 1975 and is the second-newest stadium in the Big 12 Conference behind only Milan Puskar Stadium of West Virginia (which had its design based on Jack Trice Stadium). Including hillside seats in the corners of the stadium, the facility's official capacity is 56,800. The stadium consists of double-decked grandstands running the length of either sideline, as well as a set of bleachers in the south end zone.

In 1975, the stadium's playing field was named in honor of Jack Trice, Iowa State's first African American athlete and the school's first athlete to die of injuries sustained during a Cyclone athletic competition. Until 1997, the facility itself was known as Cyclone Stadium. Because of persistent requests by the students, the facility was renamed Jack Trice Stadium, making it the only one in Division I-A named for an African American individual. Jack Trice Stadium was completed in less than two years, from its ground breaking on Oct. 26, 1973, to the first game, a victory over Air Force on Sept. 20, 1975. In late 1973 and spring of 1974, heavy earth-moving equipment shaped the embankments. A huge, movable form shaped the lower decks with thousands of cubic yards of concrete. Originally, the stadium had a capacity of 42,500.
