Tiger Stadium Ranked as 5th-best Stadium in College Football? We Say We Are #1

LSU’s Tiger Stadium is an icon in the sport of college football.

Affectionately known as Death Valley, its 103,321-person capacity makes it the sixth biggest stadium in college football, and it’s certainly among the loudest in the country. In fact, it’s considered by many to boast the premier stadium experience in the SEC.

However, in a recent ranking of the best college football stadiums, 247Sports’ Brad Crawford begged to differ. He still ranked Tiger Stadium relatively high as the fifth-best stadium in college football, but that ranked third in the league behind Georgia’s Samford Stadium and Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium.

Even more interestingly, Clemson’s Memorial Stadium ranked No. 1 despite its capacity of 81,500 coming in at just 14th among stadiums that permanently host college football.

Here’s Crawford’s take on LSU’s Death Valley.

No. 1 on our list this spring of college football’s most terrifying environments this season for the Alabama game in November, Tiger Stadium will register on the Richter Scale when the Crimson Tide come to Baton Rouge during Brian Kelly’s first campaign. In addition, LSU will host Tennessee and Ole Miss, along with Mississippi State, on a robust SEC home schedule that the Tigers would love to dominate to kick off a new era at the program. Some of LSU’s biggest wins in recent years have come at Tiger Stadium and when the games are played at night, Death Valley truly comes alive.

It’s hard to argue with anything Crawford says here, and night games in Baton Rouge as a visiting team are certainly not for the faint of heart. When this team is good, Death Valley is rocking.

After back-to-back disappointing season, coach Brian Kelly will look to recapture some of that magic this fall.
