    to watch a game? Minus Jack Trice that is.

    I was at the Todd Blythe, Texas A@M game down in College Station and found that place unreal. I have been to Texas and OU. However, I don't think either are close to being as cool as the Aggies game and stadium. I have not been to it since they basically redid the whole thing.

    Pro stadium I would have to go with Lambeau just because of the History.

    Probably the Bug Eaters. I haven't been to that many stadiums though.

    College- Death Valley (LSU)
    Pro- Lambeau was great. Pretty much a college set up except on steroids.

    I agree with you. I married in to an aTm family and we have season tickets. It's a great experience for sure.

    College - Neyland Stadium, Knoxville, TN. SEC football really is a different animal.

    Pro - Gameday at Arrowhead is hard to beat.

    Notre Dame stadium. They did an amazing job with the renovations while maintaining it's historic look and feel. However, I am surprised their crowd doesn't get louder. I have been to two close games at ND stadium and the crowd doesn't touch JTS for loudness factor.

    I haven't been to many.

    My experience at Kinnick was pretty awesome. Night game upset win against #3 Michigan.

    I was excited for Camp Randall, but it was a sleepy 11am game against a crappy Purdue team.

    I haven't been to any pro games that mattered. Just a few half empty pre season games. Arrowhead was loud even for that though, so I could see how that place would be awesome.

    I’ve only been to three stadiums so it’s Kinnick. Alamo Dome sucked from a fan experience for the actual stadium.

    Ohio Stadium was pretty cool when I was there for grad school. Went to some games, but also got to tour the facility including the field. (Still love real grass better)

    Pro: I have been to a number of NFL stadiums for things other than games, but it’s pretty awesome to run an event on the field at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

    I thought Texas’s stadium/setting blew A&M out of the water. Aggy fans were nice, but beyond weird. A&M is more passionate, but if you’re talking stadium it’s not close.

    Boone Pickens is an incredible facility as well

    college- I've only been to Jack Trice and Kinnick.... so Jack Trice by far for me. But I'd love to see a game in Austin.... and I think Oregon would be cool too.

    pro- Lambeau for me, but that is biased as well. But you can't beat the history, and it's just an awesome place to go to a game. A nice big stadium just plopped down right in the middle of a very middle class residential neighborhood.

    Texas’ stadium is incredible but their atmosphere was not very good the two times I’ve been there. Crowd is a bunch of old people. OSU is awesome, wish I coulda been there for a night game but both were 11 AM’s

    A bunch of great answers so far! All stadiums hold some charm for one reason or another. For example, I saw Alabama play @ Duke (small stadium category) on a sun-splashed day in 2010 in front of a sellout crowd, and that was a perfect CFB Experience! I also love Nippert Stadium (small stadium category) @ Cincinnati - which is a fantastic place to see a game. In the Big Stadium Category, I love Ohio Stadium @ Ohio State for a Day game and LSU's Tiger Stadium for a Night game. As @Macloney said, the SEC Stadiums are different animals, especially: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, LSU and Tennessee. Oh!, @ Arkansas (medium stadium category) is one of my favorites too! It is stunningly beautiful snug in the foothills of the Ozarks. B1G stadiums can be a different animal too like Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Wisconsin, etc. I'd add that Kinnick and Mich. State are two of my favorites in the medium stadium category (like Arkansas). Too many stadiums, not enough time! Of course, the Rose Bowl on NYD is beyond compare! Three of my favorites below:

    Ohio State vs. Oregon @ 2010 Rose Bowl Game:

    Liberty Bowl/thread

    The stadium/set up in Tempe was really cool for the 09 bowl game.

    Hate to admit it but I’ve been to a few really good upset games in Kinnick and enjoyed them. Penn State back in I think 08 and Michigan a few years ago were both great atmospheres.

    Lambeau is awesome for any fan but especially if you are a Packer fan you have to go see a game there.

    Really strange to see so many people say Kinnick.

    I've been there numerous times and have never had a good experience, even the times when ISU has won there. The whole experience is just not good IMO. No parking, no space to sit with seats about 8 inches apart, not friendly at all, etc, etc.
