Obviously this is a somewhat subjective topic — whether you’re one of the many Notre Dame fans in the country or a diehard fan from Appalachian State (joining the Division I ranks this season), you’re probably going to think that your team’s stadium is the best. It is possible, though, to bring a measure of objectivity to this: to identify certain contributing factors that do make one stadium better than another. The bigger a stadium is, the louder and more raucous the crowd will be.
While a smaller stadium can have a similar effect because it’s more compact, when a team squeezes more than 100,000 fans into a single space, the difficulty for the opposing teams is ratcheted.
Notre Dame's field has always been a classic look, most notably the slash lines in each end zone.
