Portland State has been playing football games regularly at Providence Park since 1967. In the early years, the venue was known as Civic Stadium. Through more than a half-century, coaches such as Mouse Davis and Pokey Allen and Tim Walsh and players such as June Jones and Neil Lomax and Chris Crawford and Joe Rubin have plied their trade there.

This season, the Vikings have only one of five home dates scheduled there — on Oct. 13 against Big Sky opponent Northern Colorado. The rest of the home games are at Hillsboro Stadium, a 25-minute drive (in good traffic) west of the PSU campus on Highway 26.
