2. Doak Campbell Stadium, Florida State University
Popular Mechanics: “Florida State’s stadium was meant to mimic the academic buildings around it, using brick as an all-encompassing feature. It took three million bricks to make it work. Originally opened in 1950 with 15,000 seats, the Tallahassee venue has grown into a stadium of 83,000-plus seats and one of the largest continuous brick buildings in the nation.”
Our Take: The illustrious home of the most famous chant in all of college football, the “Seminole War Chant”, Doak Campbell has seen plenty of excitement throughout the years. There’s just something about the way the garnet and gold of the Seminoles meshes with the brick façade of the stadium to produce a simply sublime atmosphere, and one that is found only in Tallahassee.
