The final whistle sounds in a stadium jam-packed with individuals who have just shared the experience of being one cog of a 60,000-part machine; a heat-generating, loud, passionate and rowdy college football crowd.

You are certainly too amped up to go home or back to the hotel (and you need a place to put the pesky goal posts you’ve carried out of the stadium), so it’s time to look for something else to do, a place to celebrate your noble triumph or perhaps a spot to join with others to drown your very real sorrows.
The following slideshow ranks the Top 25 schools where the weary but noble college football enthusiast can leave the field house and not have to look far to find a great gathering in which either to celebrate or commiserate.
