College Football: Ranking the 50 Loudest Stadiums

If we did the BCS Rankings on the loudest stadiums...well, it may not look much different than the first rankings that came out Sunday.

With these rankings, though, we don't need computers or strength of schedule to help us.

Instead, we just need a properly constructed facility that works seamlessly with the 50,000 to 100,000 screaming fans to create the loudest stadiums in the nation.

We're talking the type of noise that requires earplugs for the faint of heart.

So who has the loudest stadium in the nation? It's a close battle, but you'll need to keep reading to find out the winner.
