The University of Alabama at Birmingham played its last game at Legion Field on Saturday, leaving behind the legendary stadium known as the "Football Capital of the South."

After their intrasquad practice game, UAB is heading to Protective Stadium in October in downtown Bimingham.

Legion Field opened in 1927 and hosted University of Alabama and Auburn University games for decades, including Iron Bowl games, before hosting UAB for 30 years. The stadium is owned by the city of Birmingham and is named after the American Legion.
