In 1959 the stadium’s first expansion raised the seating to 41,500. It was again expanded in 1972. The current capacity is listed as 53,000, but a record crowd of 56,333 was in attendance for the November 1, 2008, nationally televised upset of then number-one ranked Texas.

The stadium name was changed to Jones SBC Stadium in 2000 due to a naming rights agreement with SBC Communications, which funded a large part of the stadium’s recent and ongoing expansion. On April 6, 2006, the stadium’s name was officially changed to Jones AT&T Stadium as a result of SBC’s merger with AT&T and adoption of AT&T as its new corporate name.
