Best Place To See A College Football Game

Contributed by Alec Bates
I know that a lot of fans think that their college football team has the best stadium, the best tailgating, and the best atmosphere, but I've been to dozens of college football stadiums and there is one that I just can't get enough of. It's Tennesee and their stadium for the Volunteers. Sure, I'll bet that fans of other SEC schools will cringe to hear that, but since I'm not actually a die hard fan of the Volunteers, I think I'm being pretty objective.
I'm actually from Memphis, born and raised, and I root for the Memphis Tigers. I watch every game that the Tigers play, usually in person, but when I can't make it to the game I watch college football on DIRECT TV. In other words, I absolutely never miss a game.
But, believe it or not, when Memphis plays Tennesee, which is almost never, I drive to Knoxville not only to support my Tigers but also just to soak in the atmosphere around the Vols game. I always used to think that Knoxville, Tennessee was a college town, but it's far bigger than that. However, you'd never know it when you get to the city; everyone is rooting for the 'Orange', or at least it feels like it. I might not root for the team, but I wish other schools had that kind of pep surrounding the game!
