True college football fans know that it doesn’t matter where the sport is played- the important thing is the game. Still, there’s no denying the excitement that America’s top college football stadiums inspire. The acoustics that let you hear the thousands of screaming fans, the lights that highlight perfectly night game action, and the home turf that leads your team to victory all play a part in the game day experience. Here are a few of my absolute favorite football stadiums (regardless of whether or not I like the team).
Franklin Field in Philly
This is the oldest college football stadium still in use, and the history is enough to make it one of the best locations to watch a game. The first scoreboard made its home here, and the stadium was the first to have Astroturf in the days where UPenn shared the field with the Philadelphia Eagles. You’re definitely not going to catch the most exciting games here (I mean, Harvard is one of their biggest rivals) but its certainly worth a stop to pay tribute to football history.
