While you may love watching football in the comforts of your home, there’s just nothing compared to the actual, live atmosphere of seeing your favorite teams duke it out in a stadium. The energy is uproaring, with a large audience cheering on for their respective teams and the experience being unlike any other. However, we’d like to make it very clear that not every stadium in the U.S. is equal to one another. In fact, there are stadiums which are just far better, earning their reputations of being among the best that the U.S. has to offer.
This stadium actually cost 120 million dollars to build. However, it’s still half the amount of how much McLane Stadium cost. Despite that, it still draws a lot of games for Houston. It’s also the 5th facility that the hometown team, the Cougars, would consider their home.
Beaver Stadium certainly has its fill of fans. The number in attendance always reaches 6 figures, with every fan wearing white in show of support to their home team, the Nittany Lions. It was also the site of such amazing games, such as the one held last October against Ohio State. It may not have resulted in a victory, but there was no doubt that the electricity throughout the entire game was amazing.
The Rose Bowl is perhaps the most recognizable stadium in the entire U.S. It has a rather simplistic bowl shape without any upper decks. What this means is that fans get all the best seats to be had. Aside from that, it’s also quite a tourist attraction, with non-sports fans visiting it to check out the grandeur of the venue.
This stadium has been dubbed as a “smurf turf”, basically due to the fact that it’s blue. From a distance, it may even look like a body of water with football players running on it. Nonetheless, this stadium the playing surface is one of the major highlights of this stadium. Talk about achieving the Blue Standard, eh?
People call it “the Big House,” and with very good reason too. It held the largest crowd in attendance history, right around 115,000 fans, back in 2013. It sure does look like to be topped when Ohio State goes up against the home team, the Wolverines. It’s also got among the best sight lines everywhere, as well as wide spaciousness.
This is practically the oldest stadium among the Big 10. However, there’s no showing of its age, remaining as pristine and well maintained as before. The fans are also quite rowdy, making it difficult for visiting teams to actually get a victory in this venue. When you’ve got the entire stadium dance and cheer on to “Jump Around” by House of Pain, you know you’re in for quite a treat.
