1. Autzen Stadium - University of Oregon

Oregon boasts one of the best fanbases in the country and the Ducks know they can count on their fans to make things difficult for opposing offenses every Saturday. Legendary Michigan coach, Llloyd Carr, said Autzen was the loudest stadium he's ever been in. Barry Alvarez said "They are right on top of you and they're just relentless."


2. Husky Stadium - University of Washington

Husky Stadium holds the record for the loudest college football stadium with an ear splitting 133.6 decibel level. Since 2016, UW has won 85.2% of their home games (tied with WSU for best in the Pac-12).


3. Rice-Eccles Stadium - University of Utah

Led by the Mighty Utah Student Section, Rice Eccles is rocking every Saturday and has become one of the most feared venues in the Pac-12. The Utes have sold out every game since 2010 and a planned stadium expansion should only make the environment even more daunting for opponents.


4. LaVell Edwards Stadium - BYU

BYU has one of the largest stadiums in the west with a capacity of 63,470. The BYU crowd was once called for 4 penalties during a game in 1989 for being too loud for the opposing offense to function.


5. Martin Stadium - WSU

WSU is often overlooked when it comes to fan passion and crowd noise due to their stadium size but the fans make sure to bring it every weekend. Go to a game in Pullman and you'll come away shocked at the atmosphere and energy throughout the stadium. Since 2015, WSU has the best home record in the Pac-12 with a win percentage of 81.8%.
