Get ready for rousing cheers, touchdowns, and traditions when game day kicks off at these college football stadiums.

Notre Dame Stadium: South Bend, IN

8 of 12

“Touchdown Jesus” and the famed golden dome loom above this storied stadium, where Joe Montana learned to throw miracles long before he was a 49er. It was constructed in 1930 after coach Knute Rockne threatened to resign if his Fighting Irish didn’t get a stadium more befitting their national stature. The flag-waving leprechaun mascot and the Irish Guard precision marchers rile up the crowd, and the team still salutes the fans after every game (win or lose). And are those fans rabid: Fox Sports recently named the Notre Dame faithful the “most obnoxious fan base” in college football.

Team Tradition: Attending Mass and walking a gauntlet of fans outside the campus chapel right before every home game.

Typical Chant: “Go Irish!”

Biggest Rivals: USC and Michigan.

Postgame Hangout: Linebacker Lounge.

Stadium Capacity: Approximately 80,000; und.com.
