Originally built in 1893 and completed  in 1923, Memorial Field consists of a football field surrounded by a 400 meter track with throwing areas for the track team. The stadium facilities include concession areas, restrooms, and a pressbox. The stadium is a brick and concrete structure and features black wrought iron fencing that encloses its West Stands. State-of-the-art FieldTurf surface was installed on Memorial Field in 2006. The newest generation FieldTurf surface features reinforced spine monofilament, silica sand, and cryogenic rubber infill that simulates natural grass. In conjunction with construction of Floren Varsity House, the upper tiers (about two-thirds of the 9,500 seats in the East Stands) were removed. The remaining seats in the East Stands have been extended to match the 7,100-seat West Stands. Including temporary end-zone seating, Memorial Field has a seating capacity for about 11,000 spectators.

Memorial Field  also includes  an extensive track and field facility. The track is named for Dusty Rhodes and is a state of the art eight-lane 400 meter urethane surface. The short side of the track is set up to run both ways in the event of wind. For field events, the facility includes four pits for the long jump and triple jump, a dual runway for the pole vault and an expansive high jump apron. The shot put and discus areas are also inside the stadium. The video scoreboard allows for immediate display of track results and allows timers to work from the press box.
