Ivy League Stadiums

                                                                                    
   

Ivy League stadiums are filled with rich tradition and history. Dartmouth (top left) has a beautiful green ivy foyer. Penn’s Franklin Field is the oldest college stadium (top right). The Yale Bowl (bottom right) is the largest FCS non-professional stadium, and the Yale Bulldogs won the second most National Championships (27). Harvard Stadium (bottom left) was the first vertical reinforced concrete structure ever built. Princeton played in the first college football game, and won the most National Championships (28).  

Super Stadiums

 

Only two remaining on-campus college stadiums have hosted a Super Bowl
Arizona State (left) and Rice (right)
Stanford Stadium, Tulane Stadium and the Orange Bowl also hosted Super Bowls
but have since been demolished.
Other professional/college venues that hosted Super Bowls are: The Rose Bowl (UCLA), Los Angeles Coliseum (USC), Jack Murphy (San Diego State), Dolphin Stadium (Miami), Super Dome (formerly of Tulane), Georgia Dome (GSU), Metro Dome (formerly of Minnesota), and Raymond James (USF).
