Alabama Crimson Tide (1915-1929)

Denny Field was located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and served as the home field for the University of Alabama football team from 1915 through the 1928 seasons, excluding 1918 when a team was not fielded due to World War I. The venue opened in 1915, and was originally named University Field.[1] It was renamed Denny Field in 1920, in honor of former Alabama president George Hutchenson Denny.[1] During its tenure as the team's home field, Alabama amassed an overall home record of 43 wins to only 3 losses. It was replaced by Denny Stadium, now known as Bryant–Denny Stadium, in 1929.[2]

The field was located at the intersection of 10th Street and 7th Avenue at the southern edge of the University of Alabama campus.[3] At present, its former location is the site of portions of Byrd Hall, Parker-Adams Hall and a parking lot.[1]
