Rice–Totten Stadium is a 10,000-seat multi-purpose stadium in Itta Bena, Mississippi, United States. It is home to the Mississippi Valley State University Delta Devils college football team. The stadium is named after former MVSU football players Jerry Rice and Willie Totten who set many NCAA Division I-AA records in the 1980s. Rice went on to become an NFL legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee. Totten played professional football after college and then went into coaching, including serving as the head coach for MVSU. He is one of the few college football coaches to have coached a game at a facility named after themselves.

In 2005, the field at Rice–Totten Stadium was renamed Charles "Chuck" Prophet Field in honor of the former MVSU Athletic Director and Sports Information Director.[2]
