Every Saturday during the fall, sleepy little towns turn into bustling centers of activity as football stadiums fill to capacity.
These stadiums are nearly as important as the players themselves on those days. They have become part of the pageantry of collegiate football, but more importantly, these stadiums have a direct impact on the game.
No other sport at any level is as influenced by home-field advantage as college football. For some teams, their home stadium is an impenetrable fortress where they simply cannot lose.
For their noise level, passionate fans and host team strength, these stadiums will be the toughest to play in this season.
