Alabama and Auburn have the same fanbase.

Madison might be a little big, but football Saturdays there, can't be beat.

Kinda sorta not really. You are either an Alabama fan or an Auburn fan. Obviously, NW Alabama is usually for UA while SE Alabama is for AU. Birmingham is pretty evenly split, with Huntsville being a little more UA and Montgomery being a little more AU. Plus, Alabama has a much larger national base overall.

That's a pretty accurate assessment.
Old friends of mine have one son that is an Auburn graduate, the other a graduate of U of A.
Talk about A House Divided.

If they haven't been improved, they no longer function as the universities football stadium and have either been torn down or now are used as the soccer field or lacrosse field.

I've been to probably about as many college towns and college stadiums as anybody on this board and I can't
really think of any place that is a small college town with great game day scene and an old "ornate, grand" stadium.

Some of your schools that have been mentioned have stadiums that have maintained some sort of traditional look in their improvements but they aren't really in small towns.

NC State played on the same field from like 1905 until 1965. When they built Carter-Finley 5 miles away from campus in the middle of a cow field, they turned Riddick into a parking lot. It still had more character than C-F though. I think State finally razed the land and salted the earth to erase all memory of how cool an on-campus stadium was.

The original post didn’t ask for “ornate, grand” stadiums, merely historical ones. It didn’t even ask for good football. Which is why the best answer remains mine. Kenan literally ticks every box. Small town, smaller stadium, tailgating, middle of campus, autumnal leaves, enough baby blue to outfit every maternity ward in the state, etc.
