The allure of the Rose Bowl can be distilled down to a single moment. Every New Year’s Day, at about 5 p.m. local time in Pasadena, Calif., the sun sets over the San Gabriel Mountains. At that instant, which usually coincides with the beginning of the fourth quarter of the bowl game that shares its name with the stadium in which it’s played, thousands of flash bulbs go off.

For an opponent, playing at newly renovated Tiger Stadium on a Saturday night is a terrifyingly difficult experience. “Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world for a visiting team,” said none other than Alabama coach Bear Bryant. “It’s like being inside a drum.”

Built in 1922 at a cost of $1.3 million, the 104,944-seat Horseshoe is one of the loudest stadiums in the country. In fact, in 1985, Iowa coach Hayden Fry claimed that the crowd noise caused Hawkeyes quarterback Chuck Long to become disoriented. ”It’s a realistic fact that happened,” Fry said at the time. “He became mentally disturbed for the first time since he’s been a starter for us because of his inability to communicate.”

They don’t call it The Big House for nothing. Opened in 1927, Michigan Stadium now seats 109,901. Michigan coach Fielding Yost, who pushed for the stadium in the 1920s, wanted it even bigger. He apparently desired a stadium that held between 100,000 and 150,000.

Memorial Stadium is known for its raucous orange-clad crowd and Howard’s Rock, which the Tigers rub for good luck before every game. Former coach Frank Howard turned the rock–a gift from friend Samuel Columbus Jones, who claimed it was from Death Valley in California–into a motivational object in the late 1960s, when he allegedly told his players, “Give me 110 percent or keep your filthy hands off of my rock.”

Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the 88,548-seat home of the Gators, wasn’t called The Swamp until the early 1990s, when then-Florida coach Steve Spurrier coined the nickname. “The Swamp is where Gators live. We feel comfortable there, but we hope our opponents feel tentative,” he said. “A swamp is hot and sticky and can be dangerous.”

Fairly new compared to others on this list — it opened in 1960 — Beaver Stadium is both massive (106,572 capacity) and loud. Kirk Herbstreit once said it had the best student section in the country. “Quite simply the loudest, most supportive student section in college football,” he said.

Sanford is big (92,746 capacity) and loud, but what sets it apart from other stadiums are the hedges that have lined the field since 1929. According to a recent story by ESPN.com’s John D. Lukacs, Georgia initially wanted rose hedges but settled on privet Ligustrum.

Lane Stadium — which sits 2,057 feet above sea level — is relatively small (65,632 capacity), but it’s a wild place to watch a game. Mariano Rivera doesn’t have a trademark on “Enter Sandman.” The Hokies run out to the Metallica song before every home game. Writer Bruce Feldman ranked it the second scariest venue in college football.

Named for former Wisconsin governor Alexander W. Randall, the Badgers’ 97-year-old home field sits on land on which troops trained during the Civil War. When “Jump Around” is played between the third and fourth quarters of every home game, the 80,321-seat stadium shakes.
