Top football stadiums in the country (Part 5)

Arkansas vs. Troy (2007 Football)

2010 Music City Bowl North Carolina vs Tennessee

Uploaded by on Jan 1, 2011

Highlights of North Carolina’s win over Tennessee in the 2010 Music City Bowl. Tennessee had the home-field advantage with the game being played at LP Field in Nashville, and the Volunteers thought they had won a dramatic victory when the officials told them to return to the sideline giving the Tar Heels one last chance to tie it at the end of the fourth quarter.

Here is a list of the top football stadiums in the country.

When it comes to college football stadiums, for some teams, it is simply not fair. Home-field advantage is a big thing in college football, and some teams have it way more than others.

There are 124 FBS college football teams, and when it comes to the stadiums they play in, they are obviously not all created equal.

There is a monumental difference from the top teams on the list to the bottom teams on the list. Either way, here it is: a complete ranking of the college football stadiums 1-124.

Arkansas native Butch Davis coached at North Carolina and Miami and did a great job. However, I don’t think he will get the Arkansas job because he got in trouble with the NCAA. He had an unbelievable win over the Tennessee Vols in the Music City Bowl. I have never heard of a team winning two games at the buzzer and having to go back on the field and play more and then losing both games, but that is what happened to Tennessee in 2010 (LSU and North Carolina).

94. Doyt Perry Stadium: Bowling Green Falcons

Doyt Perry Stadium is actually one of the better stadiums as far as MAC schools are concerned.

It is medium-sized for a MAC school, but slightly on the lower end with a seating capacity of 23,724.

Originally built in 1966, this stadium is in a great area with fans who will come out and support their team. It has a wide open feel to it, making it a little more unique than many others.

 

93. FAU Stadium: Florida Atlantic Owls

FAU Stadium is the newest stadium in college football. This helped propel it so high on the list.

Like many other new stadiums that are built at non BCS schools, the seating capacity here is 30,000.

It opened last season in 2011, and there is a decent-sized fanbase here to support the team that now has their own stadium.

Not a bad place to watch a football game. The weather here is nice too.

 

92. Kenan Memorial Stadium: North Carolina Tar Heels

Similar to Duke and Kansas, North Carolina will always be a basketball school.

Kenan Memorial Stadium is relatively large with a capacity of 60,000, and it was originally built in 1927, making it one of the oldest stadiums in the country.

Everything here is just average, and although the Tar Heels have had some good football teams over the years, they will always be basketball first.

 

91. Veterans Memorial Stadium: Troy Trojans

This stadium opened in 1950 and is located in quite a small town.

It has a seating capacity of 30,000 and is actually one of the better stadiums for any team in the Sun Belt Conference.

The locals in the city support this team, as they have had some relative success on the field. The crowd seemingly sits closer to the field here, making this one of the more unique stadiums in the Sun Belt.
