12. Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, University of Southern California
Popular Mechanics: “The Coliseum’s famed peristyle, with its Memorial Court of Honor inside, would single-handedly place this stadium high on the list. The home of the Trojans has been open since 1923, during which time it became the first stadium to host two olympiads and has hosted numerous sports franchises, including the newly returned Los Angeles Rams.”
Our Take: The Coliseum is one of the most famous stadiums in the world, and hosts some of the most famous people in the world as they watch the Trojans compete. You’ll often see some of Hollywood’s most famous celebrities roaming the sidelines because of the university’s long-standing connection with the film industry. Often though, the lights shine brighter for the Trojan’s on the field, with the Trojans having claimed 11 national titles.
