    Happy Valley for Penn State games is a great environment.

    I'd have to say Ohio State, but I'm biased!

    I was disapointed by the size of the student section and lack of involvement from the students when I visited there. A top notch football school but as far as college environment goes I would put a handful of the big 10 ahead of them.

    I've only been to games at Iowa City and Madison. Had a blast at each place every time I've been there, but I have nothing else to compare it to.

    I went to the UF Tenn game this year at the swamp. Hard to imagine anything beats that environment down there in Gainesville.

    Notre Dame Fighting Irish Staduim. There is not a better place to watch a game. Except maybe Lambeau!

    Ever been to Texas A&M? It's absolutely nuts - and it's incredibly patriotic too. I'd recommend College Station to anyone, no matter who you root for.

    Saturday Night in Death Valley (LSU) is the best experience in College Football. Bryant Denny Stadium in Alabama is a close second.
