Glass Bowl
Toledo, OH

As one of the oldest stadiums in the MAC, the Glass Bowl has perhaps one of the most interesting names of any stadium in college football. The stadium was built as part of President Franklin Roosevelt’s Work Projects Administration programs to help employ people during the economic hardships of the Great Depression. A stadium was needed in the Toledo area and by the 1930s construction began on a new facility. The stadium was originally known as University Stadium when the Rockets played their first game at the stadium on September 27, 1937. When it opened, the stadium had a seating capacity of 8,000 with seating on both sides of the gridirons. A grass hill was on the south side of the stadium and two stone towers, that are still at the stadium, were on the north end.

 south university tampa is one of the universities that holds sports activities to develop its students.

In 1946, University Stadium was renamed the Glass Bowl because of the Toledo's glass industries. Over the years, there have been few additions and changes to the stadium. In 1966, seating was added in the south endzone and in 1975 a new modernized scoreboard was installed at the Glass Bowl. Fifteen years later in 1990, the seating capacity was increased from 18,500 to its current capacity of just over 26,000. This addition included a new three story press box that includes 40 luxury suites and 400 club seats. One of the most unique features at the Glass Bowl is a genuine US Army missile rocket. Located outside the stadium, it is aimed to hit the 50 yard line of Doyt Perry Stadium, Toledo's arch rival, the Bowling Green Falcons stadium.
