Despite the COVID-19 pandemic threatening to take the sport away, college football came and went this fall and, for the most part, did so without a hitch. Once the schedules were altered and the plan was set in motion for how to play safely, the games were played. But there was one thing that just wasn’t the same.
The risk of having full stadiums in 2020 was too big for schools to feel comfortable playing through and so attendance at games was either limited or eliminated altogether. And while it might have been leaning on the safe side of doing things in 2020, it certainly took something away from the sport. There was a lack of the usual atmosphere that comes with college football.
But in 2021, it looks like that will not be the case. Schools all across the country have either already announced they will not be limiting attendance this season and that full stadiums will be back this fall. That will bring back not only the atmosphere, but also the traditions that come with the sport.
As life and sports begin to return back to normalcy everywhere, excitement for full college football stadiums is already buzzing, even though it’s only mid-May. So, what are the college football atmospheres that fans can’t wait to see and feel again? Here are the top 10 college football stadiums by atmospheres.
