Each week, we will bring you a photo of the week, showcasing the sights of Rutherford County (and beyond). Whether it’s a photo of a local landmark, a park, a photo from an event, or just a great photo from the area, we want to showcase our local communities throughout the next year.


This week’s photo is of MTSU’s Johnny “Red Floyd” Stadium.

Some facts about Floyd Stadium, according to goblueradiers.com.

  • “Set on the northwest end of campus, Johnny “Red” Floyd Stadium has undergone a multimillion dollar renovation over the past few years to make it one of the premier facilities in the region and Conference USA.”
  • “The stadium opened its doors on October 14, 1933, with a scoreless tie against Jacksonville State.”
  • “Originally built as two sideline grandstands on either side of an outdoor track, it was enlarged in 1940, 1960, 1968, and most recently in 1998 to bring it to its current configuration as an octagonal bowl.”
