13. Michie Stadium, U.S. Military Academy
Popular Mechanics: “An entire stadium facade full of Neo-Gothic architecture defines Army’s Michie Stadium, which opened its doors in 1924. The opposite side of the 38,000-seat stadium opens to the Hudson River. The historic building merges engineering with natural beauty, which, along with West Point’s unique student culture, creates a one-of-a-kind college football setting.”
Our Take: Most of the conversation about Army Football is about their option-style offense that drains both the clock and the energy of opposing defenses. However, more appreciation should be given to the home of Army Football, Michie Stadium. The stadium is located right next to the Lusk Reservoir and a mere stone-throw from the Hudson River in the hills just up the river from New York City.
