It's your Daily Football Fix! Our staff writers are here to help get you through the long, hot summer with a daily dose of college football.

Sportswriters are fortunate people. We get to travel all over the country to see games in great settings. And there is nothing like going to a storied college football stadium for the first time.

I've been to the Los Angeles Coliseum, to South Bend, to see them dot the I in Columbus, to Happy Valley to see Penn State, to Austin, to every major bowl game. And, of course, to every SEC stadium.

Like I said, very fortunate.




I saw a list that my buddy Dennis Dodd of CBSSportsline.com did recently of the top 25 stadiums in college football and I have been to 14 of them.

But there are some I'd really like to see and may never get the chance.

Here are the top five:

1. Oregon: Every time I watch a game on TV, it just seems so alive.

2. Wisconsin: I've been to Madison for volleyball but never for football.

3. Michigan: Everyone says it doesn't get loud there despite more than 100,000 people in the stands. I'd like to see it for myself.

4. Nebraska: The sea of red looks amazing on the tube.

5. Army: It's supposed to be inspirational. I'm sure it is.
