CBS Sports ranks The Big House among Big Ten stadiums

There is always debate among college football fans about which stadium is the best for the sport. And more importantly, which is the best in which conference?

It’s often said that the Big House in Ann Arbor, despite being the most magnificent cathedral of sports and the largest sports stadium in North America, can’t compete with other major venues. But Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports disagrees.

Fornelli has evaluated all 18 Big Ten stadiums now that the conference is gaining four new additions from the Pac-12, and The Big House ranks third.

3. Michigan – Michigan Stadium

When I first saw Michigan Stadium from the outside, I wasn’t very impressed. It didn’t look that big for a place called “The Big House.” It wasn’t until I entered that I realized the size of the place. On Saturdays in the fall, over 107,000 people fill the stands, and there’s no escape. The opponents are completely surrounded, and the closest seats are practically on the sidelines with the players.

Michigan is only behind Penn State’s Beaver Stadium (our top stadium since we’ve visited all 14 classic Big Ten schools there) and Washington’s Husky Stadium, which offers stunning water views.

The Wolverines are also ahead of Oregon, Ohio State, USC and the other hallowed halls of the Big Ten.
