The 2018 college football season is approaching quickly. Summer is almost here and before you know it, teams will be reporting to preseason camp.

Preseason top 25s are being updated. Other preseason rankings are starting to come out, too.

One of them: The most "intimidating" stadiums in college football for 2018.

247Sports' Jordan James ranked the most intimidating stadiums in the country for the upcoming season.

Who comes in at No. 1? The same team that's coming in at No. 1 in the preseason top 25 polls.

It's Alabama.

The Crimson Tide, the reigning national champions, almost never lose at home under Nick Saban. Their last home loss came in 2015 against Ole Miss.

Alabama will likely be favored in all of its home games once again this year. The Crimson Tide are set to open their season on Sept. 1 against Louisville.

The first home game is scheduled for Sept. 8 against Arkansas State.
