    Bobby Bowden Field at Doak S. Campbell Stadium

    15,000 - 84,392
    From a maximum capacity of 15,000 in 1953 to a record crowd of 84,392 in 2011 against Oklahoma, Doak S. Campbell Stadium has risen along with the Florida State football program to the top of the college football ladder.

    NOV. 20, 2004
    In a special ceremony prior to the Florida game on November 20, 2004, the home of Florida State football took on a meaning even more special when Bobby Bowden Field was dedicated.  Now, with numerous additions to enhance the gameday experience, Seminole fans are treated to one of college football's greatest venues.

    SOUTH ENDZONE
    The south endzone houses the Florida State University School of Hospitality, where students in the program receive hands-on experience in various aspects of the food and beverage industry.  The multi-level facility includes a restaurant and sports grill on the top floor that gives a breathtaking panoramic view of Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium.

    NORTH ENDZONE
    The north endzone, which consisted of wood bleachers until the 1994 season kicked off, is topped by the offices of the football coaches.  The offices are just part of the Daisy Parker Flory wing of the Moore Athletic Center which includes a number of amenities for the football staff.  An even more drastic change came in June of 2005 when the athletics department offices moved back into the newly rebuilt Moore Center.

    THE LAST 147
    The Seminoles have been formidable at home.  In their last 147 home games - since the start of the 1998 season - the Seminoles are 124-22-1.  The bulk of those games came with Bobby Bowden leading the team.  Over his 34-year career the Seminoles posted a 166-33-2 home record - an .831 winning percentage.  That includes an astonishing 56-1-1 record at home in the 1990's and the start of a 54-game unbeaten streak (53-0-1) which began in 1992 and stretched through the first two games of the 2001 season.

    200 & 300
    Bowden's 200th career victory came on October 27, 1990, as FSU routed Louisiana State, 42-3, in Tallahassee.  In 2007, Bowden won his 300th game at FSU on the field that bears his name with a 24-6 win over Maryland.

    260 & COUNTING
    The 'Noles are 260-86-4 all-time (.749) at Doak and 268-90-4 (.740) as the home team, which includes three seasons - 1947-49 - when they played their home games at Centennial Field.  FSU was 8-4 at the downtown Tallahassee site, including 8-0 in coach Don Veller's first two seasons.

    OCTOBER 7, 1950
    Doak Campbell Stadium opened on October 7, 1950, with Florida State celebrating a 40-7 victory over Randolph-Macon.  Since then, millions of fans have passed through the gates.
