Description Burke–Tarr Stadium is a football stadium located in Jefferson City, Tennessee on the campus of Carson–Newman College.ConstructionThe original structure, consisting primarily of concrete-supported wooden bleachers and a small press box, was constructed in 1966 to serve as the home for the Carson–Newman Eagles football, then a member of the NAIA.Eagles' successFrom 1967 to 2004, the Eagles compiled a 192 - 37 - 2 record at the original stadium, which hosted three of the team's five NAIA National Football Championship victories in 1986, 1988, and 1989. After the team moved to NCAA Division II in the early 1990s, the team ran off a home winning streak that stretched from a 62 - 31 loss to New Haven in 1993, to a 38 - 28 loss to conference foe Presbyterian on October 6, 2001, a span of 36 regular season games; Northern Colorado defeated the Eagles, 30 - 29, in a Division II semi-final game in 1997. Since that loss, the Eagles have run off another 22-game home winning streak, discounting a 2005 loss at Jefferson County High School, including two playoff games against Fayetteville State. Since moving up in classification, the Eagles are 63 - 2 at Burke–Tarr Stadium.
