About Shepard Stadium
Perhaps best known as the one-time site of a home game for the Los Angeles Express of the U.S. Football League in 1984, Shepard Stadium is a horseshoe-shaped bowl and includes a fieldhouse on the open end of the facility. The college itself was established in 1947.
The bleacher seating is quite steep with 3,000 aluminum bench seats on the north side and 2,500 on the south side. The natural grass field is surrounded by an eight-lane track.
