Just google it if you want to know. Wikipedia should have a page for Michigan Stadium as well. They might even have a list of all the largest stadiums in the country.

Michigan Stadium is certainly one of the largest stadiums but I'm not sure if it's the largest stadium.

I notice A$M is expanding Kyle Field to be a little bit larger capacity (106,000) than Texas' Memorial Stadium (100,000).
I wonder if all the new seats are gonna be 12 inches wide like the old ones? lol

UT is planning on enclosing the south end zone at DKRTM stadium in a few years, but it won't add more than a few thousand seats. It'll have a bunch of private suites and a large club room that will overlook the field and also the ever-expanding downtown Austin skyline.

Should be pretty awesome, especially if they get rid of that annoying and misused Godzillatron.

That's interesting ScoPro. I knew about A&M's Kyle field expansion but I didn't know about the plans to enclose the south end zone at DKRTM. Even if they tear down the Godzillatron, somehow I get the feeling that they'll probably erect an even larger video board!...lol.

Don't think so - I heard someone say they will probably put up two smaller ones. When the design placement would be is anyone's guess.

Texas has never played in the Big House, although we have had a few players incarcerated in the other big house.

Kyle Field is said to have a capacity of 102,512 this fall. I understand that capacity will drop slightly for the fall season of 2015 when the west side is renovated.

Yes, I believe that it is. I know that Penn State, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas A&M, Ohio State, and LSU have more than 100,000 people. DKR at Texas might be close. I love the Swamp in Gainesville, Florida, though. I would love to visit every football stadium in the country. Howard's Rock, Gatorbait, the Grove, a night game in Baton Rouge, War Eagle, etc.
