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. It was renamed Denny Field in 1920, in honor of former Alabama president George Hutchenson Denny. 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.
The field was located at the intersection of 10th Street and 7th Avenue at the southern edge of the University of Alabama campus. At present, its former location is the site of portions of Byrd Hall, Parker-Adams Hall and a parking lot.
