Ron Roberts Field at the Banta Bowl has served as the home for Lawrence football since 1965 and for men's and women's soccer since 2015. Originally called the Lawrence Bowl, the stadium was an anonymous gift from George Banta Jr. '10, and was renamed in his honor in 1978. The stadium was renamed Ron Roberts Field at the Banta Bowl to coincide with the renovation of the facility in 2015. The 3,634-seat stadium has its bleachers tucked neatly into the surrounding, tree-lined hillsides. When the fall season is in full swing, the colors of autumn light up afternoons in the Banta Bowl, forming a union between the game and the natural beauty surrounding it. The football teams at Lawrence have embraced the Banta Bowl and made it a home to champions. The Vikings have captured seven of their 16 Midwest Conference titles since moving into the stadium in 1965.
