I've worked at 7/13 of these great venues. I would have like to have seen
the L.A. Coliseum on the list: 2 Olympics, Super Bowls, NCAA National
Championships, historical home to Rams and Raiders, and both USC and UCLA before
the Bruins moved to the Rose Bowl. USC and UCLA shared the Coliseum via every
other weekend games. When they met at the end of the year, both wore home
jerseys, a tradition they are allowed to continue today weather at Rose Bowl or
Nag, when they drew up the schedule they knew that almost nobody would be able
to access the PAC game on TV anyway, so they went ahead and scheduled it at the
same time as BYU and Notre Dame on a Big 3 network.
By my count, BYU has played in 8 of the 13 stadiums - Notre Dame, the Rose Bowl,
the Cotton Bowl, Georgia, Washington, Texas A&M, Penn St, and Wisconsin, and
is scheduled to play at Michigan, and as a bonus for our friend from Lincoln, at
Nebraska, in 2015.BYU has won games in 6 of the 8 stadiums
they've played in.
The Football Gods must hate Utah. BYU vs Notre Dame......1:30 Utah vs
Washington St......1.30Utah State vs Colorado......1:30. Do they (these
Gods) sit down and try to make my life miserable by scheduling these 3 games at
the same time? and they do it every week, take an houror so. Just think
how it could be. BYU at ll:AM The U playing at 3:00 USU playing at 6:00a full day of football with "our" teams. They better make me a
Football God so I can straightenthem out.
Nebraska is a surprising omission. I'm certain it'll make the list
after BYU comes to town in 2015.
