    Larry Blakeney Field at Veterans Memorial Stadium is nicknamed "The Vet" and has a seating capacity of 30,000. The stadium was originally dedicated to the Troy State Teachers College students and Pike County residents who had died in World War II. The stadium solely consisted of a small, 5,000-seat grandstand on the west side of a running track, and was built into the natural slope of the ground. It was expanded several times, including the addition of upper deck in 1998 that brought capacity up to 17,500, until receiving a large addition of seating in 2003 which expanded the capacity of the stadium to 30,000. After the addition of the north endzone facility in 2018, the capacity once again expanded to 30,402. The north endzone facility at the stadium is the largest featured endzone facility in the Sun Belt Conference and features a 3,150 sq.ft. Daktronics15HD video board, which is also the largest in the conference, and the 6th largest among Group of Five schools.

    Trojan Walk

    Before each Troy home football game, hundreds of Troy fans and students line University Avenue on campus to cheer on the team as they march with the Sound of the South band and cheerleaders from the Quad to Tailgate Terrace, surrounded by fans who pat them on the back and shake their hands as they walk toward Veterans Memorial Stadium.

    Band Show on University

    Before each home game, the Sound of the South marching band performs a pre-game show on University Avenue in between all of the tailgating areas before the Trojan Walk begins.

    Trojan Fanfare

    During the pre-game show at Veterans Memorial Stadium, the Sound of the South will perform what is known as the "Trojan Fanfare." The band will line up around the concourse of the stadium, from the east side, to the south side, to the west side, and begin to play the "Trojan Fanfare". They later run down the steps around the stadium toward the field, and get into formation on the field to begin pregame. It is a favorite among most fans and energizes the fanbase leading up to kickoff.


    Since 2001 when Troy joined the FBS, the Trojans have not finished a season ranked in the Top 25. Troy spent one week ranked in the AP Poll in 2016, debuting at No. 25 after defeating Appalachian State and having a record of 8-1. Troy is the first football program in the Sun Belt Conference's history to be ranked in the Top 25 in either the AP Poll or the Coaches' Poll.

    Troy Uni­ver­sity is a pub­lic uni­ver­sity with its main cam­pus lo­cated in Troy, Al­abama. It was founded as a nor­mal school in 1887 with a mis­sion to ed­u­cate and train new teach­ers. Over time, the school evolved into a four-year col­lege and in 1957 the Al­abama Board of Ed­u­ca­tion adopted the name "Troy State Col­lege" and granted it the right to issue mas­ter's de­grees. In the 1960s the Col­lege opened satel­lite sites in Mont­gomery, Phenix City, and Dothan to serve the mil­i­tary per­son­nel posted at Maxwell AFB, Fort Ben­ning and Fort Rucker. More sites as­so­ci­ated with mil­i­tary cen­ters lo­cated through­out the United States and abroad fol­lowed in the sub­se­quent decades. As a leader in on­line ed­u­ca­tion, Troy Uni­ver­sity began of­fer­ing on­line courses in the Fall Se­mes­ter of 1997.Troy Uni­ver­sity is known for its in­no­va­tion in of­fer­ing in-class and on­line aca­d­e­mic pro­grams in ser­vic­ing tra­di­tional, non­tra­di­tional, and mil­i­tary st...

    The Troy Uni­ver­sity System (for­merly known as the Troy State Uni­ver­sity Sys­tem) is a pub­lic uni­ver­sity sys­tem in Al­abama that co­or­di­nates and over­sees the three branch uni­ver­si­ties of Troy Uni­ver­sity. The sys­tem was formed in 1982, as the cam­puses in Dothan and Mont­gomery were granted in­de­pen­dent ac­cred­i­ta­tion sta­tus. In April 2004, "State" was dropped from the Uni­ver­sity's name to re­flect the in­sti­tu­tion's new, broader focus. In Au­gust 2005, all Troy cam­puses were uni­fied under one ac­cred­i­ta­tion. Troy Uni­ver­sity has a total of four cam­puses lo­cated across the state of Al­abama: 1. Troy University(main campus) 2. Troy University at Montgomery 3. Troy University at Dothan 4. Troy University at Phenix City In ad­di­tion to the four cam­puses, there are also 23 ad­di­tional sup­port sites across the south­east­ern United States and other coun­tries.


    Troy Uni­ver­sity cu­mu­la­tively of­fers 46 bach­e­lor's de­gree pro­grams, 22 mas­ter's de­gree pro­grams, and 3 doc­toral pro­grams.


    The uni­ver­sity is com­posed of five col­leges, a grad­u­ate school, and a di­vi­sion of gen­eral stud­ies: 1. College of Arts & Sciences 2. College of Communications & Fine Arts 3.

    Troy Uni­ver­sity's main cam­pus is lo­cated near down­town Troy. The cam­pus sits along rolling hills with many old oak trees pre­sent along the streets and through­out cam­pus. The first two build­ings that were built on cam­pus were John Robert Lewis Hall (for­merly Bibb Graves Hall) and Shack­elford Hall, both of which are still stand­ing on cam­pus today. Bibb Graves, who was Al­abama's gov­er­nor at the time of the build­ing's ded­i­ca­tion, is re­mem­bered for com­mis­sion­ing the fa­mous Olm­sted Broth­ers ar­chi­tec­tural firm of Brook­line, Mass­a­chu­setts, to de­sign the cam­pus land­scape plan. The Troy Uni­ver­sity Board of Trustees voted to re­name the hall in Lewis'shonor on Au­gust 26, 2020. Across from the chapel is a very small lake named Lake La­goona, which is the drainage point of the creek that runs through the Tro­jan Oaks Golf Course. The Tro­jan Oaks Golf Prac­tice Course, which used to be full-ser­vice, 9-hole, 3,211-yard golf course, is one of the pris­ti...

    Troy State Nor­mal School began its sports pro­gram in 1909, when it fielded its first foot­ball team. Through the early years, Troy's ath­let­ics nick­names were not of­fi­cial and var­ied by the sport and the coach. Even­tu­ally, teams all began to use the name "Troy State Teach­ers", but when the ath­letic teams moved into NAIA com­pe­ti­tion, the nick­name was then changed to the "Red Wave". In the early 1970s, the stu­dent body voted to change the name to Tro­jans after many felt that Red Wave was too sim­i­lar to the Uni­ver­sity of Al­abama's nick­name, the Crim­son Tide. Prior to be­com­ing a mem­ber of NCAA Di­vi­sion I ath­let­ics in 1993, Troy Uni­ver­sity was a mem­ber of the Gulf South Con­fer­ence of the NCAA Di­vi­sion II ranks.
