3. Tiger Stadium, Louisiana State University
Popular Mechanics: “Seated next to the Mississippi River, Tiger Stadium once held about 1,500 students at the in-stadium dormitory. That was 1924. Now, nearly 100 years later, that student-first mantra of Tiger Stadium lives on. Architecturally, the early history of Louisiana French and Spanish design have defined the growth of the stadium with arched entries, views from the upper deck, and ties to the rest of campus.”
Our Take: One of a few “Death Valley’s” on this list, Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge really earns its nickname, with the Tigers racking up a 35-6 record at home since 2013. Talk about loud, there is no place louder than Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night when a SEC West rival is in town. After some recent renovations the stadium now holds over 102,000 spectators, making it the 5th largest stadium in the country.
