ESPN ranks Death Valley #1 stadium in the ACC

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson's Death Valley is ranked #1 in ESPN's ranking of the Top ACC Football Stadiums for 2016.

"The ACC's version of Death Valley is tough to beat not only in the league, but among stadiums across the country," ESPN said. "Clemson led the ACC in attendance last season, averaging more than 84,000 fans per game, which ranked top 15 nationally. But beyond that, Clemson has one of the coolest pregame traditions you will ever see: players rubbing Howard's Rock and then running down the famous hill into the stadium as balloons are released into the sky. There's a reason their entrance is known as the most exciting 25 seconds in college football. Because it is."

The other top stadiums in the Power Five conferences include Big Ten - Ohio State’s Ohio Stadium, Big 12 - Baylor’s McLane Stadium, Pac-12 - Washington’s Husky Stadium and SEC - LSU’s Tiger Stadium.
