Ohio State Alumni here...but I've been to a lot of places...none compare to the Horse Shoe..which is by far the best in the country...I've been to at least 80 games in that Cathedral of College Football

Others I've been to:

Big Ten:

Penn State: Beaver Stadium (only one that is louder than The Shoe)...been there 3 times
Michigan: The Big House (quietest 110,000 fans in America)...been there 4 times
Michigan State: Spartan Stadium (nothing special)...been there 1 time
Purdue: Ross Ade Stadium (Nobody goes)...been there 2 times
Indiana: Memorial Stadium (Visiting fans take the place over lol)...been there 4 times
Illinois: Memorial Stadium (what a dump)...been there 1 time
Northwestern: Ryan Field (very small, nice neighborhood area though)...been there 2 times
Wisconsin: Camp Randall Stadium (2nd best atmosphere in Big Ten...love the brats and beer...Madison is a great place)...been there 3 times

South Carolina: Williams-Brice Stadium (not impressed, seemed smaller than 80K)...been there 2 times
Tennessee: Nehlan Stadium (love the Volunteer Navy, cool atmosphere lousy team)...been there 1 time
Auburn: Jordan Hare Stadium (loudest outside the Big Ten I've been to, not as loud as OSU or PSU though, loved the trees on Toomers Corner and the TPing of them after a win...ashame what that Alabama fan did to them)...been there 1 time

NC State: Carter Finley Stadium (very small, nothing notable about it)....been there 1 time
Virginia Tech: Lane Stadium (similar to Indiana's but at least fans show up)...been there 2 times
Clemson: Clemson Memorial Stadium (very steep...love the setting, best stadium in the ACC i'd imagine)..been there 5 times

Big 12:
Texas: Royal Stadium (Nothing special) been there 1 time
West Virginia: Putzer Stadium (small but the rednecks are intimidating when drunk)...been there 1 time

Pac 12:
Washington: Husky Stadium (Prettiest stadium setting in the nation bar none)...been there 1 time
Arizona State: Sun Devil Stadium (2 Fiesta Bowl wins for OSU)...been there 2 times
UCLA: Rose Bowl (2 Rose Bowl Wins for OSU-sunset over the Rose Bowl on New Years Day = amazing)...2 times

New Orleans: Superdome (1st Playoff game agaisnt Alabama, and BCS Title loss to LSU and Sugar Bowl win over Tex A &M)...been there 3 times

I've never wasted time going to small school stadiums.

Wish List to attend:

Nebraska...looks like a smaller version of Ohio Stadium from the TV
Texas A & M
Oklahoma State

Thanks for what I think was a compliment. Bloomsburg (both of my parents' alma mater, plus my father is from the town of Bloomsburg) really has been a PSAC power the last number of years. I gave some thought to attending their home playoff game last year the Saturday after Thanksgiving (I think it was against Virginia State), but it was very cold that day and it is probably about a 1:45 drive one-way from my parents' house. (I did watch that game on TV though.)

Been to:
Every SEC East stadium except Mizzou. (USC, UGA, UT, Vandy, UK, UF)
Miss St.
NC State
Wake Forest

Every SEC stadium was fairly electric with the exception of Vandy. We usually had an equal number of fans as Vandy. UT didn't really impress me much. Yes, they fit 100k in the stadium. But if you only give each fan 10 inches of seat space, you could fit that many in my home stadium. It's old and exiting takes forever. The concourses are really narrow. The most impressive SEC E stadium in my opinion is probably UGA.
As for ACC stadiums I've visited.......with the exception of clempson, they feel a lot like Vandy. Small stadiums, very little tailgating. When we went to UVA, we got there 4 hours before kick off and nobody was there but visiting fans. It wasn't until 30 minutes before game time that people started showing up.

I'd like to go to:

Notre Dame

I would love to eventually go to a home game at every SEC stadium. First on my list I think would be Sanford Stadium since Athens is probably my favorite college town. Next would be either LSU or Tennessee.
Well it's not Athens, Baton Rouge, or Knoxville but I might be getting a pair of tickets to see South Carolina host Central Florida in about 4 weeks. Hoping for a late afternoon/night game which has yet to be determined. Would love to go to the LSU game on the 10th of October but you know the saying, beggars cannot be choosers
