Everyone who has ever been to a college football game can tell you the experience is like nothing else. Getting to watch your favorite team in a huge game as the stadium is jam-packed with screaming fans. The sights and sounds of the game are an experience that you can’t really explain. Many universities and their fan bases will tell you their game day experience is the best in the country. Here are the top five stadiums you should catch a game.
5. Autzen Stadium – Oregon
Maybe the most beautiful location a stadium can sit in, Autzen stadium is one of the premier places to watch college football. The home of the Oregon Ducks seats 54,000 passionate fans, which has helped Autzen stadium become one of the loudest stadiums in all of college football. If the opportunity is ever offered to you, don’t miss the chance to watch the Ducks play in an incredible atmosphere.
4. Michigan Stadium – Michigan
The Big House is one of the most iconic venues a college football fan could ever experience watching a game. Michigan Stadium seats over 100,000 fans, and every seat is filled when the Wolverines take the field. So many iconic moments in college football have taken place at the Big House, including the greatest upset in college football history when Appalachian State rolled into town in 2007. No big deal, Wolverine fans; you got your revenge in 2014. The Big House should be on every college football fan’s bucket list.
3. Beaver Stadium – Penn State

The atmosphere of a white-out game at Beaver Stadium is the perfect reason to go watch a Penn State game. Even non Penn State fans get jacked up watching videos of the atmosphere during a big game at Beaver Stadium. Another stadium cracking the list that seats over 106,000 fans, the tradition of Penn State football still stands strong with the Nittany Lion faithful. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch a white-out celebration with Penn State.
2. Tiger Stadium – LSU
When the lights are on during a crisp Saturday night in the Fall, all college football fans should be calling for Baton Rouge. Tiger Stadium seats well over 100,000 fans and has become a perennial visit for SEC foes traveling to Louisiana. Tiger Stadium rivals Beaver Stadium as one of the loudest venues in the country. Both stadiums take turns being voted the loudest in the land. However, if you ask an LSU fan, they’ll tell you it just means more here.
1. Notre Dame Stadium – Notre Dame
The gold standard of college football stadiums resides in South Bend, Indiana. The home of the Fighting Irish has long been the mecca of college football. Notre Dame stadium seats over 80,000 fans and tickets are hard to find if you’re looking to visit from out of town. With Touchdown Jesus watching over every game and seeing the iconic gold helmets take the field, it’s hard to say there is a better stadium to watch football in the entire country.
