College Football Stadiums

What are the top five loudest college football stadiums?

 

This is difficult to answer, as most of the claims made for decibel levels seem to be made up, however, I can say that Oregon's Autzen Stadium holds the current record at 127.2 db on October http://www.nflshopauthenticonline.com/nike-darian-stewart-jersey-c-1_53_2234.html 27, 2007, (according to the Register Guard 10/28/2007).

 

"Sitting in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Oregon's Autzen Stadium is one of college football's Justin Tucker Jersey hidden jewels. Before kickoff, Autzen is as peaceful as the Willamette River, which runs through Eugene just a few minutes from the stadium. After kickoff, the fans even the alumni forget who they are, where they come from and Elite Marshal Yanda Jersey what their degree is Nike Marshal Yanda Jersey in. The audience adopts a new collective identity for the next three and a half hours: the 12th, 13th and 14th man.

 

Autzen's 59,000 strong make the Big House collectively sound like a pathetic whimper. It's louder than any place I've ever been, and that includes "The Swamp" at Florida, "The Shoe" in Columbus and "Death Valley" at Louisiana State. Autzen Stadium is where great teams go to die." nflshopauthenticonline.com/nike-dennis-pitta-jersey-c-1_53_73.html J. Brady McCollough, The Michigan Daily 9/22/03

 

"Trust me on Autzen. Just go to the place and soak it all in. Before they throw dirt on you, take a trip to Eugene one fall Saturday. Autzen Stadium is a zoo; there's no other way to say it. Get inside your own 20 in a tight game, and you can forget about A.) hearing; B.) avoiding false starts and C.) success." Matt Hayes, SportingNews.

 

"Per square yard, the loudest stadium in the history of the planet." Keith Jackson ABC Sports.

 

"The Autzen Bounce causes deafness in laboratory rats." Dennis Dodd, CBSSportsline.

 

"Q: What would you say the loudest stadiums are? Corso: I think Autzen Stadium. Per person, the Oregon stadium is the loudest stadium I've ever been in. The fact that it's so low to the ground doesn't allow the sound to escape." Lee Corso, ESPN GameDay.

 

"If you've never been to a game at Autzen Stadium do yourself a favor and get there soon. One word for the experience. Loud. Hurt your ears loud. Make them bleed loud. The crowd there is unbelievably educated on when to be loud and when to calm down when they have the ball. It's just a very tough environment with the noise and just trying to communicate." Jeff Tedford, Cal HC

 

"They are very difficult to beat at home. The crowd is, from every report I get, from every coach I've spoken with, a real factor. You have to learn to communicate without talking, because talking doesn't do you any good." Lloyd Carr, Michigan HC (before playing at Autzen).

 

"That's the loudest stadium I've ever been in." Lloyd Carr, Michigan HC (after playing at Autzen).

 

"Crowd noise is almost an unfair advantage. You can't check Game Justin Tucker Jersey plays, you seemingly have less time on the play clock and everything starts to feel really rushed." Troy Taylor, Cal QB

 

"They're going to be loud from the first snap until the last snap. They are right on top of you and they're just relentless." Barry Alvarez, Wisconsin HC.

 

"You can hear a pin drop when their offense is on the field, and when our offense is out there, it's like being in a thunderstorm." Thomas DeCloud, Cal Safety.

 

As for the top 5? I have not been able to verify any other claimed db marks. If anyone can, please feel free to (citing sources is FTW, not citing sources means you have no leg to stand on).

 

Where is the largest indoor college football stadium?

 

There are three categories of college football stadiums. 1) Built specifically for a college team. 2) Built for a NFL team and shared with a college team. 3) Built and owned by a municipality but is primarily used by a college team.

 

1) Carrier Dome, 42, 262, Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York (used exclusively by Syracuse University)

 

2) Louisiana Superdome, 72,968, Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana (shared with NFL's New Orleans Saints)

 

3) Alamodome, 65,000, University of Texas San Antonio, San Antonio, Texas (shared with the NCAA Alamo Dome Bowl game)

 

Why are college football stadiums bigger than professional ones?

 

College has bench seating and Pro has actual seats meaning you fit mor "seats" in the Sam space.

 

NFL has a blackout rule that says if the stadium isn't sold out the game isnt shown on TV meaning they miss out on the very lucrative TV money which is more lucrative than selling tickets.

 

NFL tickets cost $150 and college $30. Also college is filled with a student band, students, and the alumni which gets bigger every year. That equals more people willing to go to a college game.

 

Last college has less games so all the people that want to see a college game have less chances per season so individual game attendance is higher.
