In the same way that players and coaches need the eight-month offseason to re-tool, re-charge and re-focus, the actual venues that host college football games need some time off, and frankly some need it more than others.
Indeed, when you host anywhere from 16,000 (Idaho’s Kibbie Dome) to 109,000 (Michigan’s Michigan Stadium) six or seven times over a three-month span, your facility is apt to need some TLC.
The following slideshow pinpoints 15 college football stadiums in need of some major spring cleaning during the offseason.
Though all 125 collegiate gridirons will require some measure of polish, the highlighted edifices have remained virtually the same for decades and it’s time to call in an architect, a planner and a number of generous benefactors.
It’s important to note that this is not a list of the worst stadiums in college football; instead, it’s a discussion of which venues are most overdue for major renovations.
