The LSU Field House is widely recognized as one of the country's best facilities for top-level indoor competition. Completed in 1975, the LSU Field House originally sported a 220-yard unbanked tartan oval. In December of 1987, the oval was slightly widened to its current 200-meter configuration.

At the SEC Indoor Championships in 1998 the track at the Field House was dedicated and renamed in honor of late LSU Athletic Director Carl Maddox, an avid fan of track and field and a major force in building the Field House.

The Field House has been host to a bevy of track and field action since its first meet on January 25, 1975. The Field House has hosted the SEC Indoor Championships on 15 occasions, most recently in 1998. Other major events held in the Field House include the 1981 NCAA "Outdoor" men's long jump (contested indoors due to rain), the 1986 and 1988 TAC National Masters Indoor Championships Team Trials for the men's 200 and 400 meters.

In addition, it is host to Louisiana's two largest high school indoor meets, the LSU High School Indoor Classic (since 1978) and the Louisiana State High School Indoor Championships (since 1982).
