Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium, or The Zou, is the home football stadium of the University of Missouri Tigers in Columbia, Missouri. Faurot Field has a capacity of 68,349. In 1972, Memorial Stadium's playing surface was named Faurot Field in honor of longtime coach Don Faurot. Fundraising began in 1921 for a Memorial Union and a Memorial Stadium to be constructed at the University of Missouri. The names of the two projects were a tribute to Mizzou alumni who lost their lives during World War I. Ground was broken on the site of the future stadium in 1925. The site was a sizeable natural valley that lay between twin bluffs south of the campus. Original plans called for the stadium to seat 25,000, with proposed stages of expansion in capacity to 35,000, 55,000, 75,000 and 98,875. According to legend, a rock crusher and truck were buried during initial blasting, and they still remain buried under the field.
