Merlin Olsen Field at Romney Stadium is an outdoor football stadium in Logan, Utah, USA, on the campus of Utah State University (USU). It is the home field of the Utah State Aggies of the Western Athletic Conference. It opened in 1968 and currently has a seating capacity of 25,513. Its SprinTurf playing field runs in the traditional north-south configuration, and sits at an elevation of 4710 feet (1435 m) above sea level.

Romney Stadium opened on September 14, 1968 with a 28–23 victory over New Mexico State. At that time, the stadium has a capacity of 15,000.

Thanks to a massive volunteer effort in 1980, 10,000 seats were added to the southern bowl which brought the capacity to its present figure. Prior to the 1997 season, approximately 4,000 chairback seats replaced wooden bleachers on the west side of the stadium.
