One of the great things about college football is that, unlike the NFL, the opportunity to attend top-tier games is not limited geographically and financially.
While NFL franchises are based in larger cities geographically located near populous regions, college football can be found in big cities, medium-sized towns and little communities that stretch across the map.
Yes, no matter where you live or where you might travel to, college football is there.
Not only is it readily available, geographically speaking, it is also more accessible from a purely financial standpoint.
Case in point: The average cost of an NFL ticket in 2010 was a whopping $76.47 while the average cost for a “high-demand” ticket in one of the six BCS-AQ conferences is $60.27 and the average cost for a “low-demand” ticket in one of these same premier conferences is only $36.81.
So, of the 120 venues in FBS college ball that are the best, what does “the best” mean?
Is it capacity, student fervor, attendance, location, setting, storied history, overall game-day experience, the band, the fans, traditions or some mysterious combination of all of these factors?
The following slideshow attempts to blend all the key elements together to power rank all 120 FBS college football stadiums, from No. 120 all the way to No. 1.
