LSU’s Death Valley Loudest Stadium According To NCAA

No Horseshoe? No Swamp? Callin’ shenanigans, arbitrary NCAA.org rankings.

Makes sense that Death Valley takes the top spot here. Tiger Stadium’s capacity crowd of 92,542 essentially serves as a fall-long warm-up for Mardi Gras. Don’t know if it’s Les Miles’ penchant for an all-grass diet, or maybe the crowd’s legitimately terrified by the over-literal interpretation of “Eye of the Tiger” at midfield, but the Baton Rouge faithful sure know how to bring it each and every Saturday they’re not playing Nick Saban.

As for the rest of the top five?

No. 5: Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech

No. 4: Camp Randall Stadium, Wisconsin

No. 3: Kyle Field, Texas A&M

No. 2: Autzen Stadium, Oregon

No. 1: Tiger Stadium, LSU

Great to see Wisconsin’s “Jump” tradition singlehandedly propel Camp Randall into the upper-echelon, but I have to say, Blacksburg’s an interesting round-up of the top five. Gut’s saying that a Hokies team should at least be a top 25 team to qualify for this completely random ranking.

Upset that Bryant-Denny, Between the Hedges, Happy Valley, or (insert your particular inadequate college stadium here) didn’t make the top-tier cut? Loudly sound off in the comment section. Unless you jokers root for the Maize & Blue, in which case, raise a barely audible ruckus.

    I’ve been to every BCS stadium south of the mason-dixon line and east of the mississippi (I’m a blessed, lucky motherfucker) and I have to say Lane Stadium is the second loudest stadium I’ve ever seen behind LSU. Considering it’s smaller than you’re typical SEC stadium (I think it’s 65k vs. 100k at death valley), it’s a hell of an accomplishment.

    In no particular order, here’s my top 5 of stadiums I’ve been to (feel free to disagree, this shit is all subjective):

    1) LSU
    2) Va Tech
    3) UGA
    4) UT
    T-5) UF/Clemson

      I’ll tell you that Williams-Brice (South Carolina) gets a hell of a lot louder than Clemson Memorial does for 4 quarters. After the players touch the rock the crowd sort of loses its spark throughout the game. In Columbia it’s the opposite, the crowd gains momentum that becomes a fourth quarter eruption.

    I don’t know why this is a discussion topic. You could just take a Sound-level meter to a few games at each stadium and average it out, then rank the results. Its a measurable value. Its like arguing over which stadium holds more people. You can literally measure this, there is no reason for a subjective evaluation

    “the Baton Rouge faithful sure know how to bring it each and every Saturday they’re not playing Nick Saban.” You should go sliding down DickMountain ass first.

    As a U of O alumni I have to say I’m not surprised we made 2, at the Halloween USC game my freshman year my ears never stopped ringing. Good for you LSU at least you can claim you’re the best in SEC for something.
