BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Athlon Sports polled "twelve experts" to rank all 14 SEC football stadiums and it comes as no surprise that Tiger Stadium is the top venue in the conference.

What makes a stadium special? According to Athlon Sports, "ranking college football stadiums is not only subjective but also extremely intricate. General atmosphere, fan support, home-field advantage, amenities, tailgating, the surrounding campus and the college town should all be considered when trying to rank college football stadiums."

That leaves no doubt to any LSU fan, that Tiger Stadium is indeed number 1.

Athlon Sports on LSU's Tiger Stadium, "As one of the loudest and most rabid atmospheres in the nation, LSU boasts one of the most daunting home-field advantages in college football."
