The Best of the Best College Football Stadiums

Tiger StadiumAs we begin week three of college football, it is safe to say the season is in full-swing, which means college football fans’ lives are now revolving around the game. Die-hard fans know that Saturday is all about football and some are even taking days off work to follow their favorite team to away games. While the games are the primary focus of the season, there is a lot more to it. College football is also about tailgating and the stadiums.

Tailgating is a time for catching up with friends and family, trash talking with other fans, and most importantly GRUB! Delicious drinks and food are a must before the game. How will you have energy to cheer during the game if you have an empty stomach? The other crucial part of college football is the stadiums. Each stadium has a unique atmosphere on game day that is indescribable, but worth experiencing. With that being said, here are the best of the best college football stadiums that are worth using vacation days on to catch a game:

Beaver Stadium — University Park, PA

The Penn State student section or “S-Zone” is the reason Beaver Stadium makes the list.  As one of the best student sections in college football, they will make your trip to Pennsylvania worth it.

Neyland Stadium — Knoxville, TN

Before going into Neyland Stadium, you can tailgate in boats on the Tennessee River. Do we need to say more?

Rose Bowl Stadium — Pasadena, CA
