Default College football stadiums

The only college stadium I have been to is South Carolina.

Whag would be your top three bucket list stadiums for the overall experience?

I'm not a Virginia Tech fan but my brother and a bunch of friends went there. Back when I was in college they were actually good. When Enter Sandman comes on during a night game you won't find a louder stadium. Even the old people are jumping up and down. When they're on defense the entire stadium is standing and yelling or shaking their keys.

Other stadiums I've been to are Clemson, UNC, UVA, Auburn, UGA, and some smaller schools.

Stadiums I'd like to go to are the Coliseum, Big House, Death Valley for a night game, and just tailgate at The Grove at Ole Miss.

I have been to ND, Michigan, and Tiger stadium on a Saturday night. 1st on my bucket list is not really a stadium but the Army/Navy game, followed by Folsom Field, and then Husky Stadium.

Many people don't realize how large the University of South Carolina is. The state has relatively few colleges, and "Carolina' is a big'un.

The University of Alabama would be at the top of my list right now at 104,000 fans. They also have a huge contingency of tailgaters that add to the atmosphere, and it's nice to have a winning team.

The University of Mississippi is another unique experience with all of the Colonel Reb Club members in their motorhomes in The Grove. Some bring their butlers and cooks and often really put on the Ritz like most common folks have never seen.

When in college, we once took a road trip to the University of Arkansas. Their games are incredible with such a big crowd calling in the hogs, "SOOOOOOOOOEEEEEE, PIGS!!!!!!" They're uncouth and a lot of fun as a university mascot. I just wish their teams were better.

ND and Army. Seeing a game at West Point is a fascinating experience and though it is a small stadium, it is nestled in a beautiful area.

You really aren’t missing much with the Gators. The swamp is old and decrepit and not in a historical way like Notre Dame.

You REALLY want me to answer this ��

CLEMSON’s DEATH VALLEY

Good friend of my son’s played at USuC (GREAT KID and proud of him, honor grad of Darla Moore School of Business at USC and doing well) and got to talking to him earlier this year about stadiums he played in. Naturally Willy B was his favorite but he said his favorite opposing stadium was The Swamp . He told me the fans literally breathe down the back of your neck and ride your tail whole game and you BETTER play good or it gets worse . He did love Sanford Stadium and naturally both Death Valleys (LSU and Clemson )

Not a Notre Dame fan but would love to see a game there as well and a night game in Blacksburg VA for VA Tech (got to love this entrance second only to Clemson )


Hey Willy B is a great place when chickens are playing well

Not there for a game but we were headed to Clearwater a few couple years back for vacation and spent the night on way down in Gainesville and since our son is a Gator fan we stopped in and took a look around. Really liked the way it looked, felt like football even in June


UGA hat on Gator was NOT MY IDEA, SIL is a UGA fan (Now a Clemson Grad) but wanted the picture to send my Son

Still sour about losing to the Gators this year, huh? Doesn't look like next year will be any better for the Five and Sevinoles.

LSU Tiger stadium is a really wild place
Kyle field was pretty neat

but man we helped serve 3000 plates of Cajun food a few years back in Baltimore for the Army/Navy game and that experience was off the charts!!!!

Nah, when you have no expectations you are never disappointed. The Swamp is a shit box you have to admit. Not talking atmosphere, just facility.

It would take hard liquor to stomach watching the Seminoles play. I’m not even going to mention their abortion of a stadium.
