War Memorial Stadium Manager Charlie Staggs will tell you the stadium looks a lot different today than it did more than 60 years ago. Since then there have been multiple renovations, including closing in the North and South sides. It now seats more than 54 thousand spectators.
It was built to honor fallen soldiers of both World Wars but has since been rededicated to all Arkansas Veterans.
"A lot of times we forget it's a memorial," said Staggs. "We think it's a football stadium, but it's actually a memorial."
But the football is what draws the crowds, playing host to hundreds of Razorbacks games over years including 2002's "Miracle on Markham," where the Hogs beat LSU by one point in the final seconds of the high stakes game.
Conference and even national championships have been decided on this gridiron.
"It's just a different atmosphere here at War Memoiral Stadium," said Staggs. "The crowd is so close to the field. It gets behind the guys and they just have to perform. They just feel like they can't lose in Little Rock."
And the tailgating outside is some of the best in the country.
It's also musical mega stars who've added to the history here, including the Rolling Stones, Eagles, Billy Joel, and Elton John.
The Hogs take on the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks at War Memorial Saturday, September 8th. The stadium will also play host to the Razorbacks later in the season when they take on Ole Miss October 27th.
