See what the site says about each Big Ten stadium:


"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."


"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."


"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."


"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."
