8. Bobby Dodd Stadium, Georgia Tech
There is not a lot where Georgia Tech strongly outpaces its in-state counterpart, but the stadium is definitely one of them. Bobby Dodd Stadiums is in one of the best locations in college football. The stadium overlooks the Atlanta skyline during every football game. It’s one of the few stadiums that looks just as cool during the day as it does at night. Putting the skyline right there makes a loss every once in a while easier to swallow. It might be the coolest sights inside a college football stadium. It’s one of the luxuries about having a stadium right in the middle of a city (but the traffic is another story).
Right outside the stadium is a string of bars and restaurants that make the traditional tailgate a completely different experience. Then, they can head to Yellow Jacket Alley where they can cheer on the team as they walk towards the stadium.
It’s technically the oldest stadium in college football. It was built in 1913 right in the middle of the burgeoning city of Atlanta. (Kyle Field is technically older, but they didn’t build the actual stadium around the field until 1927.)
Honestly, this stadium deserves a lot more praise than it gets. Its capacity (it only fits around 55,000) and its football team (Georgia Tech has only been bowl eligible twice in the past five seasons) put it lower on other lists, but this is giving it the appreciation it deserves. Bobby Dodd is one of the best experiences for a college football game.
