More on The Rose Bowl

Capacity: 92,542

Construction completed in 1922

This iconic stadium is home to the oldest bowl game in the country. It was constructed in the early 1920s after the Pasadena (Calif.) Valley Hunt Club chose to host a Jan. 1 event highlighted by a parade and games. Now, what started with events such as the "tourney of rings" and ostrich and chariot races has led to the well-known Tournament of Roses parade and the annual bowl game that pits the Big Ten champion against the top team from the Pac-12 (unless these teams play in the BCS title game). Since 1982, UCLA has played its home games at the stadium, which has played host to four Super Bowls and was used for portions of the 1932 and 1984 Olympics. In 2010, the Rose Bowl hosted two bowl games, the traditional Rose Bowl and the BCS National Championship Game, and this year's contest, held on Jan. 1, will be the 100th in the storied bowl's history.

Having worked at Notre Dame and attended several football games, I must say that it would be hard to duplicate the spirit, loyalty, and spirit associated with playing football in Notre Dames stadium. You have to be there to appreciate the experience. Notre Dame is a class act University.

Salem, UT

Have to agree there is something unique and almost perfect about attending a game in South Bend- if you have never done it- make it a bucket list item- you will not regret it- classy place

Something to think about
Ogden, UT

Been to six of the stadiums on the list... Enjoyed Notre Dame the most... Hate Texas A&M but the crowd, chants, etc... out of this world!

Other favorites: Neyland (Tenn) and for personal reasons Gaylord Family (OU). Another older stadium, but fun crowd is Doak Campbell (Florida St) When they get going that chant they do is awesome.

How can the LA Coliseum not be on this list? 2 Olympic Games played, in addition to 2 super bowls and, not to mention, countless national championship teams of USC. So much history and pageantry with that field.
