Posted by on July 2, 2013

Being loud in a stadium is normal. As your team steps onto the field you want to make sure your team hears your voice of encouragement. You fill your lungs up, prepare your noise makers, and you let it all out! But how does your stadium’s sound of adulation compare to other stadiums? Let’s find out by looking at 25 of the loudest college football stadiums in the country.

Bronco Stadium

It may only hold 33,500 people but boy can they yell! Not to mention, these people are absolutely passionate about their college football team.


Faurot Field

Having a capacity of more than 71,000 rowdy people is certainly no joke.


Williams-Brice Stadium

Williams-Brice Stadium


The 20th largest football stadium in the country can house over 80,000 extremely excited (and loud) fans. Definitely bring ear plugs to these games.


Carrier Dome

50,000 people + enclosed space = a veritable eardrum beating. The largest dome stadium in all of college sports, definitely creates an acoustical nightmare for your ears.


Bryant-Denny Stadium

Bryant-Denny Stadium


100,000 plus people getting loud is more than just a Crimson Tide of voices


Jordan-Hare Stadium

Jordan-Hare Stadium


Auburn fans are serious about their team, and when you pack 87,000 of them in the 12th-largest stadium in the NCAA, you have pandemonium!


Oklahoma Memorial Stadium

Has a great team, a great coach and great stadium that can hold 80,000 super excited fans. What more can you ask?


Texas Memorial Stadium

The stadium has a capacity of more than 100,000 people and is the largest by sitting capacity in the Lone Star State. Things are truly bigger in Texas…even noise.


Spartan Stadium

Though it only has a capacity of 75,000 people, the Spartan Stadium still manages to be one of the loudest stadiums around. I guess their fans just know how to cheer.


Doak Campbell Stadium

doak campbell stadium


With an 80,000 people capacity it’s the largest stadium in the ACC. Couple this with fans that are completely excited over their team and you have one very loud and very intimidating stadium.


Mountaineer Field

mountaineer field


Its 60,000 people capacity might not be that much, but Mountaineer field is still considered one of the loudest stadiums around.


Kinnick Stadium

Packing more than 70,000 faithful fans, the noise that they create is deafening.


Kyle Field

kyle field


It’s the 13th largest stadium in the NCAA, packing more than 83,000 people. A great combination for loud riotous cheering.


Michigan Stadium

michigan stadium


It can hold more than 110,000 people and its the third largest stadium in the world. No wonder it’s called “The Big House”. 110,000 people screaming at the same time is sure to be loud.


LA Memorial

la memorial stadium


It seats over 93,000 people and is the only stadium in the country to have the privilege of hosting the Olympics twice. Nevertheless, Trojan fans expect a lot from their team which is reflected in how low they cheer.

Asia Khatoon


Asia is a world traveler who enjoys exotic cuisine and meeting strange new people. Although she considers southern Peru to be home she spends most of her time wandering off the beaten path.

    I’ve played in a bunch of these stadiums but except for Baton Rouge, none of these are as loud as Nebraska. Va Tech is close though

  • Mathias

    Where is Washington’s stadium, and the Fargodome? LSU isn’t even the original Death Valley. Happy Valley what the crap is that. It is called Beaver Stadium. Also the Horseshoe should be moved up.

  • Steve

    This list is absolutely rediculous. Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium should be a top 5 and is not even on the list You dont even know dude.

  • Ed

    Obviously, you just phoned it in by putting DKR Stadium on there.

    Texas may have 100,000 people there, but they are there for social hour. All they do is sit on their hands and complain about Mack Brown.

    Jones AT&T Stadium is way louder than DKR.

    • Mathias

      Yeah but when crush Oklahoma you start to get confident fans.

    Boise state is not at 25. There stadium is like the Seahawks stadium of college football. Managers from other team like Tenn Martin said its the loudest college stadium in the NCAA

    • Garrett

      Yeah I’m sure that Tennessee-Martin staff knows a lot about loud stadiums

  • Jason peters

    What about nebraska’s memorial stadium. This list is a joke! Cannot be taken seriously

    Washington’s Husky Stadium has long been recognized as one of the loudest stadiums in the nation.[12] This is in part due to the stadium’s design; almost 70 percent of the seats are located between the end zones, covered by cantilevered metal roofs that trap the sound.[13]

    At times, the high decibel levels typical of Husky games (especially from fans stomping their feet in the bleachers) causes television cameras to shake. During the 1992 night game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, ESPN measured the noise level at over 130 decibels, well above the threshold of pain. The level reached (133.6 decibels, according to ESPN) is the highest noise level ever recorded for a college football stadium.[14]

    Yeah, Husky Stadium in Seattle, Washington set the record a couple times for loudest stadium. You’d think it would be on a list of loudest college stadiums…

  • PK

    Husky Stadium in Seattle, Washington holds the record for loudest stadium. It’s been recorded and confirmed a couple times.

  • Dominic

    Really?? You don’t even have Husky Stadium in the top 25…. Did you do any research??

  • Paul

    Good lord, You couldn’t find a updated photo of Faurot Field??? That was like from the early 90′s!

  • Russell Pearce

    get the stadium names right – the original death valley is in clemson, not baton rouge. there are 3 ways to do it: memorial stadium & tiger stadium, death valley & death valley, or death valley & tiger stadium.

    also, more explanation. happy valley @ #5 is a joke, right?

  • James Franco

    What a disaster this list is – to not put Husky Stadium in the top 5, let alone leaving them outside of the top 25, is a serious mistake. Whoever composed this list did not do their research.
