Best Stadium Outside of the Horseshoe

PotatodiggerPotatodigger Posts: 203 Junior
The Buckeyes just got back from playing Rutgers in Piscataway, New Jersey. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that High Point Solutions Stadium isn't on anyone's list of best stadiums. But I'm curious what is. For those who have ventured outside of the friendly confines of Ohio Stadium, what is your favorite stadium experience in college football?

In my limited experience at other stadiums, I would have to go with Autzen Stadium. Great setting and really good environment.

    Not a college stadium, but the 2014 Natty was there... Jerry World really is amazing in person. Rose Bowl, Penn State, and Wisconsin are pretty cool.

    Did you do the midnight "yell practice " or whatever they call it the night before? I've heard their fan base is legit on gamedays.

    I haven't traveled much.  I was at Camp Randall last fall and was a little underwhelmed by the stadium experience.  The "jump around" thing was cool, but other than that it was sort of a "meh" atmosphere IMO, and it was a close/exciting game at night.  For example, I showed up with other Buckeye fans wearing full Ohio State gear and wasn't mocked/insulted/cursed at one time.  I felt left out.

    If you haven't seen a game at Neyland Stadium, I highly recommend it. I covered Tennessee for a few years, and everything from the Vol Navy at the tailgate, the walk into the stadium with the band, running through the 'T' and hearing "Rocky Top" (the first five or six times) is a reminder of why college football inspires so much passion. Now, if they could just get a coach who knows what he's doing on the sideline ...

    I got hit with batteries and coins shoved into Marshmallows when I went to Mad Town.  This was back in the 90s though.

    I still haven't covered a game at Camp Randall yet, if you believe it. Everything I've heard up until getting hit with coin-infused marshmallows had been positive.

    I was fortunate enough to visit the sidelines @ Neyland Stadium during a game and was completely overwhelmed by sites and sounds of that historic facility.
