Michigan Stadium Ranked Fourth-Best College Football Experience by Stadium Journey

More love for The Big House.

Not that any Michigan Wolverines fan is unaware, but The Big House continues to receive accolades for being one of the top venues in all of college football.

The latest comes courtesy of Stadium Journey, which has just released a top-to-bottom ranking of all 128 FBS stadiums.

The Big House came in at number four. Here's what they had to say about it:

Mention the term "The Big House" and just about anyone that's ever watched a college football game will know the reference. The third largest stadium in the world and the largest stadium in the US, Michigan Stadium was constructed in 1927 at the insistence of legendary Michigan coach Fielding Yost. It originally seated 72,000, but was quickly updated to seat over 85,000. Renovations over the years have gradually boosted capacity until 2010 when it reached 109,901, its current capacity. On September 7, 2013 against Notre Dame the stadium hosted a record capacity of 115,109.

The site says it uses "official correspondents" to rank stadiums on a number of criteria including the food & beverage inside the stadium, the overall atmosphere, the neighborhood where the stadium resides, the fans, access to and inside the stadium, overall return on investment and an "extras" category for any unique features not covered in the other categories.

Here is the top 10:

1. Notre Dame

2. Alabama

3. Ohio State

4. Michigan

5. Texas A&M

6. Navy

7. Texas

8. Texas Tech

9. Baylor

10. Florida State
