Boone Pickens Stadium, formerly known as Lewis Field, is home to the Oklahoma State
University college football program. Boone Pickens Stadium, the home of Oklahoma State
Football, is a far cry from what the student body expected when they were renaming the
field before the 1914 football season. Lewis Field, much like the Cowboy football program,
was left largely neglected and enjoyed only modest renovations throughout its near-
century of existence. However, this all changed in recent history. With the resurgence of
Cowboy football sparked by the 2001 16-13 victory over Oklahoma in the annual Bedlam
game and the subsequent 2002 Houston Bowl season, interest soon returned to a major
overhaul of Lewis Field. An ambitious fund-raising project for the Lewis Field renovation
dubbed "The Next Level" became the flagship efforts of the Oklahoma State athletic
In 1914, the student body named the “Athletic Field” after Lowery Laymon Lewis. A former
dean of veterinary medicine and of science and literature from Oklahoma A&M, Dr. Lewis
was one of the most popular figures in the school’s history.
In addition to his duties as dean and instructor at OAMC, Lewis served as the school's
acting president in 1914. Instrumental in the development of experimental stations around
the state under his brief administration, OAMC established the first school of commerce
and marketing in the nation.
"Doctor Lew" was highly respected by the school's student body, which named the football
field "Lewis Field" in his honor prior to 1914. The university's first yearbook from 1914 is
dedicated to Dr. Lewis. While the playing field bore his name (thus two references as
Lewis Field and Lewis Stadium), OAMC installed grandstand seats in 1920, pushing
capacity to 8,000. The stadium originally was positioned in the traditional north-south
direction, but switched to east-west to avoid the strong prevailing winds.
