college football | loudest stadiums

To get us into the mood for the fast-approaching Super Bowl, we thought we would take a look at some of college football's loudest stadiums. 

Live sports are almost always entertaining but nothing quite lives up to the chaos that occurs on Saturdays for college football,

Although its fun to look at, it's important to note that no definitive ranking of stadium nouse exists - below is a list of schools that have attempted to record noise levels measured in decibels. 

Husky Stadium, University of Washington.

Home to the University of Washington Huskies, the Husky Stadium holds the record for the loudest college football stadium with a whopping 133.6 decibels level. The record was set way back in 1992 during a game against Nebraska.

Memorial Stadium, Clemson University.

Often referred to as 'Death Valley', Memorial Stadium's Clemson Tigers were measured raising their combined voices to a level of 132.8 decibels during a 2007 game against Boston College.

Autzen Stadium, University of Oregon.

Home of the Ducks and with a capacity of 54,000 people, Autzen Stadium is one of the loudest stadiums in College Football. Crowd noise hit 127 decibels in a 2007 game against USC. 

Lane Stadium, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

Rivals.com once ranked Lane Stadium, home to Virginia Tech, as offering the best home-field advantage in all of college football. Since 2000, Metallica's 'Enter Sandman' has blasted through the stadium as the Hokies prepare to enter the field. The song is accompanied by 65,000 fans jumping up and down screaming, making it one of the most intimidating sights in sports. In 2017, a volume of 126.2 decibels was recorded during this pre-game tradition.
