My vote goes to LSU for their crazy fans. Those Cajuns sure know how to get really drunk and loud at a football game, especially at night. Texas A&M is also extremely loud with the 85,000+ in the stadium waving white towels over their heads and when they start to chant and sway back and forth you would think the stadium is about to topple over.

While not the best atmosphere in nation, Oklahoma is probably one of the best and should be included on your list. One of the all time winningest programs in college football (7 national championships) and consistently ranked in the Top 10 (until this year) OU games in Norman are quite the experience. Penn State may rule tailgating but OU does it just about as good and the 84,000 that pack the stadium are usually pretty loud.

Oklahoma and Texas have one of the best rivalries in the nation played at the Cotton Bowl every year in Dallas with the fans split down the middle. It's a great atmosphere where fans and students from each university go to Dallas for an entire weekend of partying, drinking, and going to the fair all centered around the football game.

Will anyone be going to a bowl game?

I picked up my Orange Bowl tickets last week (under the impression we would get to see Marcus Vick). Should be fun to watch us rape FSU but it is a shame we won't get a chance to prove ourselves as atleast #2.

Thought about VT but I was disappointed by their fans during the Miami game, Lane Stadium is also small.

I had to vote for the Big House even though I go to Notre Dame. That stadium just reverberates with the screaming of 111,000 fans, and the entire city stops for game day.

Although, Notre Dame stadium, which has a reputation for mild-mannered fans, held its own in the USC game this year. On that 4th and 9 play it was LOUD.

Oh, and for the unparalleled Notre Dame Irish football tradition, check out this video:

Don't they have any kind of passenger train services in the USA? Are the railways only used for freight? If so when did they stop the passenger trains? Is it because they wouldn't get enough customers, that would be hard to believe. You'd think the USA would be the ideal place to have super-fast trains, quicker than the bullets in japan.

passenger trains exist but only in super urban areas. state college,PA and alot of these bigger colleges are not super urban and are several hours from urban areas. the quantity of cars made passenger trains virtually obsolete in the past 50 years in most of the US.

Other places in the world don't have nearly the domestic airline network that we have either. So basically people fly instead of taking the train. Look at the world's busiest airports lists and see how many US airports are on there.

The train station in state college from the 30's is now a parking lot and bus terminal, people fly and drive.

Yep, according to www.world-airport-codes.com, 17 of the 30 busiest airports in the world are located in the US.

People just fly or drive more here, and its often much cheaper to do than taking trains. Although, on the east coast there are some very cheap bus routes (the so-called "Chinatown" buses). I took a bus from Philadelphia to New York City for only $10.

Thanks for the information guys. I had a fague idea they didn't use trains much in the USA. I wouldn't mind getting trains in the UK but they're so damn expensive for basic service.
