There are a lot of great football stadiums in the Big Ten Conference, so it was interesting to see recently that Athlon Sports rounded up some college football experts to rank them.
What was even more interesting to see, however, was that they ranked none other than the Horseshoe, Ohio Stadium, at the number one spot.
Here’s their look at Ohio Stadium and why they decided to put them at the top.
1. Ohio Stadium, Ohio State
Opened: 1922 Capacity: 102,329
There is little doubt that the Horseshoe is the Big Ten’s best place to watch a game. A great nickname, awesome traditions, tremendous fan support, elite level of success, High Street and the Banks of the Olentangy make Ohio Stadium a bucket list destination for fans of every team. And with a new video board, audio system and LED lighting, Ohio State boasts one of the top college football venues in the nation. Watching the “Dotting of the I” before a Buckeyes game is something all college fans should experience. Finishing in the top five in average attendance every year doesn’t hurt either.
Yes indeed, there are few better places to watch a football game, not just in the Big Ten, but in all of college football than the Horseshoe; and with the current renovations that are taking place, it should be better than ever this season.
