Who could ever get tired of seeing 100,000 people sing Sweet Caroline or Mr. Brightside? One may be old school, but that will always hit different.

Another week of college football has come and gone. Looking back on the week that was, here were the top five atmospheres around the country:

On Saturday night, to honor and pay tribute the 2,996 people who lost their lives during the devastating attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, Baylor’s student section held up 2,996 cards — each with a different victim’s name.

The last time BYU had beaten Utah in the Holy War was on Nov. 28, 2009. That was until Saturday night, of course. Go crazy Provo, you deserve it.


4. Ohio Stadium

It may have come in a loss, but there are few places in America that get as loud and rowdy as “The Horseshoe” on a Saturday afternoon.

When Sam Pittman got hired at Arkansas a year ago, he promised the great people of Fayetteville that he was going to bring a winning culture back to their historic football program. And after the effort that Pittman’s Razorbacks showed on Saturday night during their blowout win over Texas, it would be hard to argue that Coach isn’t going to deliver on that promise.

The battle for the Cy-Hawk Trophy is more than just a rivalry game. It’s a tradition that was first started in 1894 and is a match-up that is always circled on the calendars of Iowans statewide. You win this game and the statewide bragging rights become seemingly endless. But if you lose…let’s just say it’ll be a long year of waiting until the next one.

The dress code at “The Big House” in Ann Arbor on Saturday night was simple: Wear maize and lots of it.
