University of Nevada, Reno

Mackay Stadium

Since the early 1900s, Nevada football teams have played in facilities named after University benefactor Clarence Mackay. Until the mid-1960s, Mackay Stadium was a small field located in the bowl that currently houses the Donald W. Reynolds School of Journalism. A plaque marks the spot, which is located next to the Fall Foliage display just outside of the Reynolds School of Journalism. The modern Mackay Stadium was completed in 1967 with a seating capacity of 7,500. Today, with several renovations completed, the stadium has a capacity of 29,993. Mackay Stadium is home to many memorable and historic Wolf Pack victories, including the biggest comeback in NCAA history, when Nevada, trailing Weber State by 42 points in 1991, rallied for a remarkable Division I-AA playoff victory.
