College football-that combination feast-party-competition-celebration-tent revival-has at its very core, The Stadium. That's where the converted go to stock the passions that stir the soul-or, at the very least, threaten the eardrum. "The Sporting News' football experts select the 40 best stadiums in which to watch-no, experience-college football. The stadiums were chosen based on their settings, their structures, their fans, their mascots, the magnitude of the games played there, their marching bands, their traditions. Vivid photos throughout the book give it a special ambience. See the Golden Dome at Notre Dame, the Coliseum epistyle at Southern California, the orange-and-white checkerboard end zones at Tennessee; walk between the hedges at Georgia, past Howard's Rock at Clemson. Saturday Shrines will offer four regional cover options featuring the SEC/ACC (ISBN: 089204795X); Big Ten (ISBN: 0892048042); Big 12 (0892048069); and Pacific 10 (ISBN: 0892048069).
