Whoop It Up: Virginia Tech Stadium Second Loudest

For those of you wondering just how loud Virginia Tech's smallesh football stadium is compared to some of the nation's 100,000-seat monsters, take heart. It is second in the nation in vocal volume to Penn State's huge Beaver Stadium (106,000 capacity) and one spot ahead of the University of Tennessee's legendary 104,000-seat Neyland Stadium.

(Note that the University of Alabama, 101,821, and Texas, 100,119, are not in the top 15. Here are the capacities of the nation's biggest college football stadiums.)

Tech's Lane Stadium is the third smallest stadium in the Top 15 and far smaller than many schools' facilities that did not make the list. Only Oregon's and Colorado's relatively tiny stadiums are smaller among the Top 15 and they are half the size of some.

The rankings are from TheBuckeyeNut

 Here is the Top 15:

1. Penn State (Beaver Stadium), 106,000 capacity
2. Virginia Tech (Lane Stadium), 66,233
 3. Tennessee (Neyland Stadium), 102,455
 4. Wisconsin (Camp Randall Stadium), 80,321
 5. Georgia (Sanford Stadium, 92,746

7. Oregon (Autzen Stadium), 54,000
8. Texas A&M (Kyle Field), 109,000
9. Colorado (Folsom Field), 53,750
10. Michigan (Michigan Stadium), 109,901
11. Michigan State (Spartan Stadium), 75,005
