Reser Stadium

Reser Stadium Go Beavers!The home of the Oregon State University Beavers has had $115 million in fiscal improvements completed since the 2005 season, including installation of a state-of-the-art video board, the largest in the Pac-10 Conference at the end of the 2007 season. The east side of the complex houses some of the finest amenities in all of college and NFL football, and was completed prior to the 2005 season.Over the last three years the capacity of the stadium has increased by 11,000 and now features some of the best viewing in all of college football.The OSU student-body sits directly behind the Beavers' bench along the east sidelines, with passionate fans in other sections. One of the unique aspects of the stadium is that the seating is close to the field, giving OSU a distinct home field advantage.That home field advantage has equated into a 25-game non-conference home win streak (prior to the 2009 season). The Beavers have scored some of the program's biggest wins at Reser Stadium in recent seasons, including snapping USC's 27-game Pac-10 Conference win streak in 2006 and then defeating the No. 1 Trojans in 2008.Reser Stadium was originally known as Parker Stadium until June 14, 1999. At that time Al and Pat Reser of Beaverton, Ore., made a personal seven-figure gift to OSU athletics.The stadium, which is located on the south side of campus, was originally built in 1953 with a seating capacity of 28,000. Following the 1965 Rose Bowl, additional end zone bleacher seats were added to raise the capacity to 33,000. The stadium was expanded to 40,593 in 1967 with a new addition to the west side, including a new press box. Stadium capacity was reduced in 1990 as a result of the construction of the original Valley Football Center. In June of 1996, an enlarged Valley Football Center opened. The stadium's capacity is now 45,674.Reser Stadium has become a shining monument for not only Athletics, but the entire University. "Beaver Nation" has embraced the upgrades to the facility that has become a source of pride for all of Oregon State University.The school began making serious renovations to the stadium in 1987. A new 1,500-seat VIP section was added on the west side (press box side) of the stadium. During this phase a new artificial surface was installed at McAlexander Fieldhouse, the former facility that was used by the program for indoor practice. The phase also included installation of aluminum seating to replace 100 percent of the wood bleachers.www.osubeavers.com/Aerial video B-Roll of OSU Football field turf taken by Skyris Imaging. Southwest 26th Street, Corvallis, Oregon, United States
