The 10 Largest College Football Stadiums in the Country

Every fall, college football fans flock to ginormous stadiums and pack them to cheer on their favorite program.

In some places across the country, over 100,000 fans can gather in one stadium for a single game.

If you push some capacities further, the attendance could reach closer to 110,000.

It's no surprise that the largest stadiums in the United States are mostly located in the Big Ten and SEC, where tradition runs deep 365 days of the year.

Not only are the gigantic structures the largest in college football, but they dwarf stadiums in every other American sport.

Each venue also has its signature features and historic moments that make it unique.

We took a look at those while counting down the 10 largest stadiums in college football.

10. Sanford Stadium Capacity: 92,746 Signature features The field on the campus of the University of Georgia is surrounded by hedges. Unlike most stadiums across the nation, the field has an east-west orientation instead of a north-south.

9. The Coliseum Capacity: 93,607 Signature features Not only is the Coliseum home to USC football, but it also plays host to the Los Angeles Rams of the NFL at the moment. In addition to football, the Coliseum has accommodated the Olympics on two occasions and will once again take center stage in 2028 when the Summer Games return to Los Angeles.

8. Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium Capacity: 100,119 Signature features Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium is named after the legendary Texas coach, but before it bore its current name, it was dedicated as Texas Memorial Stadium in 1924 to honor the 198,520 Texans who fought in World War I. Lights were not added until 31 years after the opening of the stadium to allow for night games.

7. Bryant-Denny Stadium Capacity: 101,821 Signature features For much of its existence, Bryant-Denny Stadium had no logos on the field. After the turn of the century, end-zone and midfield graphics were painted on the grass in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for a more modern look.

6. Tiger Stadium Capacity: 102,321 Signature features LSU is one of the few programs in the nation that plays on a field with line markers every five yards instead of the traditional 10. Tiger Stadium also features old-fashioned goal posts.

5. Neyland Stadium Capacity: 102,455 Signature features The orange and white checkerboard end zones stand out first when you take a gander at Tennessee's Neyland Stadium. When it first opened in 1921, the venue could hold a maximum of 3,200 spectators. 

4. Kyle Field Capacity: 102,733 Signature features The home of Texas A&M is the largest stadium in the SEC, and inside you'll find one of the most unique fanbases in the sport, the 12th Man.

3. Ohio Stadium Capacity: 104,944 Signature features The first thing you notice about Ohio Stadium is its shape. The 104,000-plus seater is designed like a horseshoe.

2. Beaver Stadium Capacity: 106,572 Signature features On six occasions, it expanded its capacity to accommodate in excess of 110,000 people, topping out at 110,753 when the Nittany Lions hosted Nebraska in 2002.

1. Michigan Stadium Capacity: 109,901 Signature features They don't call it the "Big House" for nothing. The Wolverines enter the largest stadium in college football by touching the "Go Blue" banner that awaits them on their way out of the locker room. Michigan Stadium has hosted international soccer friendlies, hockey games and is only smaller than the 1st of May Stadium in Pyongyang, North Korea.
