If college football is a religion in Louisiana, it would have to be its mother church Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. The iconic stadium has been the scene of some of the most epic football moments in college football history. Those who leave know it. There’s something about “Death Valley” that lifts the spirits of home audiences and makes visitors tremble in their shoes.
As you might imagine, a building like Tiger Stadium is more than just a place to be banged the hell out of Ole Miss. It is a landmark in Baton Rouge. The silhouette of the stadium can be seen as you cross the Mighty Mississippi River on I-10. I know this because you usually have a lot of time to look towards the horizon because the traffic is so bad. But, lawmakers and DOTD say they’re fixing that.
Football fans know that a stadium is so much more than a building with seats and not enough toilets. It is part of the heritage of the community it serves and in many cases the stadiums offer their own unique beauty and awe-inspiring views and moments.
OLBG.com, the sports betting community website recently researched stadiums across the United States and around the world to find the most beautiful stadium in the world. As we suspected, Tiger Stadium made the list.
The website used Tripadvisor reviews and Instagram Hashtags to formulate his list. The results showed that the “most beautiful stadium in the world” was not intended for football, futbol, soccer or any other sport that I understand. the OLBG.com nods for the most beautiful or most impressive stadium in the world went to the Asgiriya Stadium in Sri Lanka. They play cricket there.
It was eight Southeastern Conference football stadiums that made the list. At the top was Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. The place where the Tide Rolls ranks 8th. Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium was ranked 10th and Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge was ranked 16th.
Another SEC stadium that made the list was Kyle Field in College Station, where Jimbo Fischer pays the highest dollar for lost seasons, they came in at No. 18. Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee, with its checkerboard-like end zones was No. 19.
Soon-to-be SEC member Texas also made the list, with Darrell K Royal Stadium at No. 21 and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at the University of Florida at No. 22. That one again Rankings were created using Tripadvisor reviews and Instagram hashtags. No, not the most scientific of all “studies”, but the list seems pretty legit.
You’ll also find that in most cases, sorry A&M, the stadiums are home to winning programs. That probably has a lot to do with the “positive feedback”. There’s nothing better than a win to fall in love with a stadium, right?
