University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Crusader Stadium

Belton, Texas

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, an NCAA Division III institution, initially explored the addition of an on-campus football stadium when it was incorporated as part of a 2011 campus master plan. When the stadium opened in 2013, it represented a landmark project for the university and one of the finest D-III facilities for one of the most successful football programs in the nation. It joined together a campus by merging student life and college football in one facility, creating new traditions and supporting Christian life at UMHB.
