The University of Southern Mississippi's M.M. Roberts Stadium was opened on September 25, 1976. So far the highest attendance record for the stadium was set September 5, 2009 at 36,232 when the Southern Miss Golden Eagles took on the Alcorn State Braves. M.M. Roberts Stadium was formerly called Faulkner Field from 1932-1976 when it was rebuilt and given its current name.

The stadium is currently affectionately known to the students and fans as "The Rock."
