Ranking the ACC Stadiums

Athlon Sports also ranked the ACC football stadiums by the same criteria. Quite interesting how the ACC stadiums differ from those in the SEC. Wes Durham was among the ACC voters.

Memorial Stadium, Clemson 82500 1942
Doak Campbell Stadium, FSU 82300 1950
Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech 65632 1965
PaPa Johns Stadium, Louisville 55000 1998
Carter-Finley Stadium, NC State 60000 1966
Bobby Dodd Stadium, Ga Tech 55000 1913
Kenan Stadium, North Carolina 62980 1927
Scott Stadium, Virginia 61500 1931
Carrier Dome, Syracuse 49262 1980
Sun Life Stadium, Miami 80120 1987
Heinz Field, Pittsburgh 65050 2001
Alumni Stadium, Boston College 44500 1957
BB&T Field, Wake Forest 31500 1968
Wallace Wade Stadium, Duke 33941 1929

Clemson's Memorial Stadium was ranked first on 9 of the 12 ballots, second on two, and third on the remaining ballot. FSU received two first-place votes, and Lane Stadium received the remaining first place vote. Georgia Tech's Grant Field garnered two 4th place votes and two 10th place votes.

I have attended games at Georgia Tech, Clemson, UNC, and the Orange Bowl in Miami. I've driven past Wake Forest's BB&T Field.
