What is Nebraska’s stadium capacity among Big Ten teams

·2 min read

When it comes to Big Ten stadium capacity the Big Ten is by far the most dominant in college football. The conference has the three of the largest college football stadiums in the country, with a capacity of over 100,000 with each venue. However the league does not have the most 100,000 stadiums as that honor falls with the SEC, which currently has four of the eight facilities eligible, with Texas A&M, Tennessee, LSU, and Alabama breaking the 100k threshold. The SEC will soon have five of the eight eligible teams as Texas will soon leave the Big 12 for their new conference.

Where do the Huskers and Memorial Stadium fit into the overall capacity of Big Ten venues? Scroll below and take a look to see and be surprised at small some league venues truly are for Power 5 college football.
