The Big 10 is lucky to have some of the most iconic and recognizable venues in all of sports. From Michigan Stadium (or as you probably know it, The Big House) to Camp Randall in Madison, WI., the stadiums residing in this conference offer some spectacular sights. Here's how they stand against each other.
Sorry, Purdue fans. Maybe it would help if you filled up your stadium past the halfway mark.
Is there something I'm missing? I know the Packers played here a few years back, but "The Gopher Hole" just doesn't do it for me.
I feel like the Scarlet Knights should probably have one of the flashiest stadiums in the country. Instead, it's plain -- and kind of small.
I'll admit it: The venue itself is attractive. But the Fighting Illini faithful are pretty much on the same page as Purdue. And that's not good.
Now we're getting into the good stadiums. I love Kinnick's simplicity. I think it runs perfectly parallel with the team.
I wish Northwestern would expand this thing. It could be a few more spots up if that happened. Nonetheless, you have to love some of the quirks of Ryan Field, especially at night.
Maryland wins it all in the end zones. That design is flashy. Recent renovations bumped up the stadium capacity, but logos and design just might cause a seizure.
This is another one of those relatively simple stadiums that can still draw a tear. I haven't been to Lincoln, but I wish to go for the experience of walking into this iconic venue.
Camp Randall has been a complete stadium since 1917 -- that's a long time. I have a feeling many will disagree with this pick (and probably No. 5 as well), but Camp Randall almost gets magical for me.
I can hear the boos. But hear me out: Memorial Stadium, coupled with the great college town of Bloomington, is wonderful. It almost looks futuristic. If you haven't been, it would almost be worth your time to take a visit.
Spartan Stadium isn't anything luxurious, but like Kinnick Stadium in Iowa, I think it works out wonderfully that Michigan State seems to play to the tone of its surroundings.
The Horseshoe is easily one of the most recognizable stadiums in the country. Its unique design gives way to a unique history. This is another stadium I hope to one day visit.
When you turn on your TV and see a Penn State game at Beaver Stadium under the lights, doesn't it feel like all is right in the world?
There are absolutely two sports venues you need to see in your lifetime: Madison Square Garden and The Big House. Nothing in this world beats walking through that tunnel into the stadium and witnessing a breathing sea of maize and blue. It's incredible.
