We go to the Texas-ou game at the stadium. The concession stands are crowded and old. The bathrooms need a remodel. The big screen in the end zone is very small and hard to distinguish the numbers and letters. This place needs a facelift.

The most important detail is the sun. Since we went to an afternoon game, I strongly suggest buying seats closest to the main gate (gate A). We were opposite this section and had the hot sun in our faces the entire game. As the sun...More

This was my first time here and we really enjoyed it since Oklahoma won. My only complaint would be that they have a big screen on both ends of the field.

Great on site facilities. Army tailgate was well staffed & food was great. Stadium is a bit dated on concessions but it's an historic gift to football. The complex is great & traffic was not bad. Easy to Uber here & there in Dallas.
