The following is a list and slideshow of photos of the largest college football stadiums in the Pac-12 in 2014. I’ve actually listed all the stadiums in the Pac-12 and ranked them by seating capacity.
The average capacity of a Pac-12 stadium in 2014 is 60,436. A pretty impressive number but over 10,000 less per stadium than the Big Ten averages. Check out the slideshow of 12 photos if you are interested in seeing what each Pac-12 stadium looks like.
Largest Pac-12 college football stadiums in 2014
1. Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum – 93,607
With a seating capacity of 93,607, the largest stadium in the Pac-12 in 2014 is the Los Angeles Memorial Stadium where the USC Trojans play. The Coliseum is also the ninth largest stadium in college football in 2014.
2. Rose Bowl – 91,136
The Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, which is the home of the UCLA Bruins, is the second largest stadium in the Pac-12 with a capacity of 91,136 in 2014. The Rose Bowl ranks as the 11th largest stadium in college football in 2014.
I’ve been to the Rose Bowl a few times. The first time was in 1987 for Super Bowl XXI. I’ve also been to the Rose Bowl a few times for UCLA games too, and when the sun sets over the San Gabriel Mountains it’s a beautiful view.
3. Husky Stadium – 70,138
Husky Stadium, the home of the Washington Huskies in Seattle, Washington ranks as the third largest stadium in the Pac-12 this year with a capacity of 70,138.
4. Sun Devil Stadium – 67,704
Sun Devil Stadium, the home of the Arizona State Sun Devils, had a capacity of 71,706 last year, but seats were removed from the upper north end zone before the 2014 season lowering the capacity to 67,704 in 2014.
5. California Memorial Stadium – 63,186
California Memorial Stadium, the home of the Cal Golden Bears in Berkeley, California, is the fifth largest stadium in the Pac-12 in 2014 with a seating capacity of 63,186.
6. Arizona Stadium – 56,037
Arizona Stadium, the home of the Arizona Wildcats in Tucson, Arizona, has a capacity of 56,037 in 2014, which ranks sixth in the Pac-12 this season.
7. Autzen Stadium – 54,000
Named for major donor Thomas J.Autzen, Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Oregon, the home of the Oregon Ducks, has a listed capacity of 54,000. The Oregon Ducks always average many more fans than that per game so the stadium must have lots of standing room or removable seats.
8. Folsom Field – 53,613
Located in the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado, Folsom Field is the home of the Colorado Buffaloes. The stadium holds 53,613 fans in 2014, good for eighth in the Pac-12.
9. Stanford Stadium – 50,000
Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto, California holds 50,000 fans in 2014.
10. Reser Stadium – 45,674
Reser Stadium, the home of the Oregon State Beavers in Corvallis, Oregon, holds 45,674 fans in 2014. That ranks 10th in the Pac-12 this season.
11. Rice-Eccles Stadium – 45,017
Rice-Eccles Stadium, the home of the Utah Utes in Salt Lake City, Utah, has a capacity of 45,017 in 2014.
12. Martin Stadium – 35,117
By far, the smallest stadium in the Pac-12 in 2014 is Martin Stadium, the home of the Washington State Cougars in 2014. The stadium is, ironically, named for former Washington State Governor Clarence D. Martin who graduated from the University of Washington.
