Many college football stadiums are on par with their professional counterparts as the best stadiums in sports. But there are certain stadiums that stand out from the crowd and get special recognition.
This week, Sports Illustrated released a list of the 10 best college stadiums in college football history. The list included some of the usual suspects such as Ohio Stadium, Tiger Stadium, and Notre Dame Stadium among others.
But it was one stadium that earned top billing as the greatest stadium in college football, and that was the Rose Bowl.
The history and beauty surrounding the Rose Bowl is the reason why this stadium tops the list… The one-tier grandstand surrounds the entire field and there is simply not a bad seat in the house… There is no more aesthetically pleasing place to watch a game, and it certainly sits atop the list of stadiums a college football fan must visit in their lifetime.
The legendary venue has served as the venue for the world-famous Rose Bowl Game since 1923. It has played host to such legendary moments as the 2006 showdown between USC and Texas, O.J. Simpson’s big game in 1968, and the 2016 shootout between USC and Penn State.
With a capacity of over 90,000 and situated in beautiful Los Angeles, the Rose Bowl can offer an unparalleled view of the sky. The vintage grandstand seats are also quite famous.
It became the home of UCLA Bruins in 1982 but has also been the home of numerous professional sports teams over the years.
Few venues can match the beauty and history of the Rose Bowl.
