Named for banking tycoon Gerald J. Ford, SMU's football stadium opened in 2000. The stadium has a capacity of 32,000, including 24 luxury suites. Ford Stadium is located on the same site as its predecessor, Ownby Stadium, which stood for 72 years before being demolished to make way for the new digs. Ford, who has an estimated net worth of $1.7 billion, is an SMU alum and avid supporter of the school. 

Be careful if you plug this address into a GPS, as there are two 5801 Airline locations in Dallas. Make sure the zip code is 75205, not 75225.
