27. The Superdome

New Orleans, Louisiana

Capacity: 73,208

Record attendance: 76,400, Super Bowl XII. The Dallas Cowboys beat the Denver Broncos 27-10

What makes it great: While for a time the Superdome played host to the Tulane Green Wave, generally speaking there are no run-of-the-mill college football games at the Superdome. It has played hosted the Sugar Bowl every year since 1975, and the New Orleans Bowl has been played there annually since 2001. The Bayou Classic is also played at the Superdome, an annual regular season game played between Grambling State and Southern University.

In addition, the BCS National Championship Game has been played four times at the Superdome, and the College Football Playoff semifinal game will played there every three years.

Greatest game played: On January 1st, 2015, the 81st Sugar Bowl played host to the top ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and the fourth ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. It was also a semifinal game in the inaugural College Football Playoff.

Then undefeated, the Crimson Tide was the favorite to win and move on to the CFP Championship Game against Oregon, but the Buckeyes stunned Alabama 42-35 thanks to the efforts of surprising sophomore Cardale Jones. The Buckeyes went on to beat the Oregon Ducks in the title game 42-20 and won the 2015 National Championship.
