When you talk about college football, you have to talk about the fans. And when you talk about college football fans, their home away from home is the stadium.

But not every stadium that shakes the earth on Saturdays belongs to a championship program. In fact, there are a lot of college football stadiums that are absolute zoos who belong to teams that don’t even win much.
To these fans, it’s not about winning. It’s about the opportunity to get together with tens of thousands of fellow fans to act like complete idiots for a few hours. (Actually, some of them aren’t acting at all). These are the true fans of the sport. They aren’t fair-weather fans…hell, I don’t think they even know the score half the time.
But the fans that attend these stadiums just love to scream, dress inappropriately, eat and drink mass quantities, and paint places on their bodies that were never meant to be painted. They’re the fans who give commentators and cameramen something to focus on and talk about when games get out of hand.
Winning program or not, good teams or bad, big venues or smaller – these are the 10 most raucous stadiums in college football today. And remember, raucous doesn’t just mean loud.
Just missed the cut: Milan Puskar Stadium (WVU), Kyle Field (TAMU), Spartan Stadium (Michigan St.), Memorial Stadium (Clemson), Williams-Brice Stadium (South Carolina), Beaver Stadium (Penn State)
