This was the first game played in the new stadium. Not only was the stadium nameless when it opened, but the school was then known as Southern Illinois Teachers College, and its athletics teams were known as the Maroons. The Maroons played their four 1937 home games in the new stadium, despite the fact construction was not complete. The 8,543-seat stadium was officially dedicated in 1938. Per then-state law, the stadium was not named for the school's long-time athletic director, head football coach and head basketball coach, William McAndrew until after his sudden death in 1943. Seniors Tom North and Lester Deason were the Maroons' 1937 captains. North was the Maroons' first quarterback in their new stadium.
