Beaver Stadium Voted Country’s No. 10 Stadium in Experts’ Poll

National writers are more impressed with Beaver Stadium than Big Ten writers, it seems. Penn State football’s home was recently ranked the tenth-best stadium in the country in an Athlon Sports poll of 15 national college football experts.

Only seven of the 15 experts put Beaver Stadium on their top 10 ballots, but that was enough for it to crack the best of the best. Beaver Stadium was the second Big Ten venue on the list, trailing Ohio Stadium, which clocked in at No. 2. LSU’s Tiger Stadium received top billing, but Ohio Stadium was the only one to get a spot on all 15 ballots. Rounding out the top five were Oregon’s Autzen Stadium, Texas A&M’s Kyle Field, and Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium.

This is the second time Beaver Stadium has been ranked by a poll of experts this summer by Athlon. When it solicited ballots from Big Ten writers, it was shelved behind three Big Ten schools at No. 4, trailing Ohio Stadium, Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium, and Wisconsin’s Camp Randall.

Always nice to see the Beav getting national props. In case you forgot, the Whiteout for the country’s second-biggest stadium will be against Ohio State on Oct. 25. Less than 33 days until football season!
