As a rule, college football is not the big deal in the northeast that it is in other parts of the country.

One of the NCAA’s most famous and largest stadiums is found along the shoreline of the Tennessee River in Knoxville, Tennessee. Neyland Stadium towers over all the buildings around it and has a capacity of 102,455. This makes it the 5th largest stadium in the US, the 6th largest in the world and the 2nd largest in the Southeastern Conference. Since opening in 1921 it has been a very intimidating place to play for opponents, as the Vols have a 77% home winning percentage, and 13 SEC Championships, along with 6 National Championships.

Instead it was named for the Western Maryland Railroad, which it shared some common board members.
Taking in a Tampa Bay Rowdies game can be a bit of a surreal experience. Here in the middle of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, sits a former Minor League Baseball stadium that has been transformed into the home of a professional soccer team, where fans tailgate and march through the city center before singing the entire game in support of their favorite team. This is definitely not something you would expect to see in the south, and yet, it stands out as an incredible game day experience.
