21. Neyland Stadium, University of Tennessee
Popular Mechanics: “Neyland is always near the top of football’s biggest stadium, and the two-tiered 100,000-plus-seat-venue along the Tennessee River is seemingly renovating to get a little bigger and a little better. Thanks to those 20 updates over the years, the Volunteers’ home has a mix of designs that give a historic site a touch of modernity.”
Our Take: When the Vols are good, there are few venues better in college football. Attend a big game and you will see a stadium filled with a checkerboard pattern of Volunteer Orange and White. Watch for Daniel Boone and Smoky, the Bluetick Coonhound roaming the sidelines, winding up the Volunteer fans. Here’s hoping the current team can energize their fans and fill the stadium like Peyton Manning once did.
