Home of Southeast Missouri State University football, Houck Stadium was constructed in 1930 at a cost of $150,000. The stadium has undergone several renovations in the last few years, preserving an incredibly picturesque setting for Redbird football. The first game under lights was also in 1930 and saw the home team beat Haskell Institute, 12-6, for the first victory in the new stadium.Seating on the north side of Houck Stadium was added prior to the 1963 season and a press box was constructed on the south side in 1979. Nearly 400 chairback seats were added in 1992 in a new center section on the south side. The largest crowd to see a game at Houck Stadium was 11,015 for the 1999 Family Weekend game against Eastern Kentucky.
