Iowa State takes on Iowa in a sellout crowd of 61,500 people at Jack Trice Stadium during the first half of an NCAA college football game, Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021, in Ames, Iowa. Iowa State athletes caught in a gambling sting last year were criminally charged and lost NCAA eligibility as a result of improper searches into their online wagering activities, according to defense attorneys' court filings.

If there’s one thing America really loves, it’s giant football stadiums. But one of the biggest misconceptions out there is that the largest NFL stadiums are the biggest venues in the U.S.

As many college football diehards can tell you, that’s simply not true. There are more than a dozen college football stadiums larger than New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, which is the biggest NFL stadium in the country.

So if you’re hunting for a complete list of the largest college football stadiums in the United States, I’ve got you covered. 

Below is a list of the biggest and best stadiums in FBS college football, as well as a separate list of the smallest stadiums.
