    Too high or too low? I've never been a fan of Tiger Stadium, overrated in my book, but I also think Bryant-Denny is a better stadium than The Swamp, perhaps minus the character.

    SEC football stadiums ranked 1-14 -

    Who cares? The only time LSU has an advantage is when your Heisman QB’s phone number gets leaked out to the public

    In my head--- UF
    I would probably want to agree to a few facts. first, the school’s team has a winning record going into for example game 3-6. then, it’s an afternoon or night game. also, the opponent is an SEC team or a known rival.

    With that I would put LSU first.
    The Swamp second
    Auburn /Bama

    have been to UF/LSU, Bama @LSU, A handful of home games in Tuscaloosa as well as the plains. Kyle field is very nice

    LSU has the most overrated stadium in the country. AU has the most underrated.

    That side of Knoxville is very pretty, but Neyland Stadium is a dumpster

    Good for them. They need to join another athletic conference. They spend no money on anything and still collect the same amount of money as other SEC schools.

    Been to UF, Auburn, Ole Miss, Vandy and LSU from the SEC....

    as a Miami fan my favorite place was Ole Miss. The whole experience was amazing. Went for a Vandy @ Ole Miss game. Brother in law is a Vandy grad so we go to a bunch of away games all the time once a season for a Vandy and UM game.

    I always enjoyed going to Auburn games, unless UF was the visiting team

    After visiting Tiger Stadium in 2007 when we played them I’d say that list is accurate. That place was incredibly loud and hostile and that was before they finished the renovations.

    From a tv viewing experience, Mizzou is the worst. It’s looks like the cameraman is standing on top of a ladder. A very short ladder.

    Played in both of them, AU was a day game, LSU night game, Tiger stadium is a much higher bowl feel, sound stays in the bowl and is much louder, I vote them over AU. Crowd was significantly much drunker in Baton Rouge.

    This is obviously one mans opinion and his opinion just happens to be wrong. Ga and atm in top 3??? On no planet we know of is either of those ahead of Ben hill or Neyland. Pregames be damned , nostalgia alone it’s not even close. Anyone that’s ever been to Athens knows this rather easily

    Side note : I’ve always loved the fact that the seats are so close that fans could conduct the coordinator meetings during game in Ben hill. I’ve heard from people that know more than I do that fans are so much closer than in most other stadiums it’s not even close. Gotta be tough to deal with when we’re rolling

    "And, as the old saying goes: Only Gators get out alive. 87,000 fans routinely make sure that saying holds true on hot Sundays each fall."

    Do we play on Sundays too? I've been leaving too early I guess
