Athlon Sports recently asked a panel of 15 college football experts for their favorite stadiums, and Ohio Stadium was the only one to land on every ballot. The Buckeyes’ home finished second overall (105 points), however, to LSU’s Tiger Stadium (130), which was No. 1 or No. 2 on 11 ballots.

Ohio Stadium received just one No. 1 vote, but was no lower than No. 7 on any ballot.

Beaver Stadium ranked No. 10 (31), while Michigan Stadium (28), Camp Randall Stadium (23) and Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium (13) all received votes. See full poll.

Not really any big surprises here, from a Big Ten perspective. If I had to choose one, it would be Memorial Stadium as the conference’s No. 5 stadium. Thought it would be higher.

Nebraska’a Memorial Stadium should be ranked in the top 3. Especially since the expansion to over 92,000 seats, the atmosphere there is second to NONE!! GBR!

I have been lucky enough to go to many college stadiums and have to agree that Columbus is a special place to see a game. In fact, most Big Ten stadiums are pretty fun.

Michigan at 28?!? You can’t beat the BIG HOUSE! 100,000+ seats and the best tailgating in football! GO BLUE!!!

Ohio Stadium received 105 points…equal now to the new seating capacity! The SHOE is the place to be on a Saturday afternoon…or should I say night, after the addition of permanent lights!

15 moronic mentally retarded idiots obviously. Just typical OSU bias and hatred. Pathetic and sad!
