StadiumJourney.com, a site devoted to providing tips and reviews of pro and college sports stadiums, ranked BCS football teams for the biggest home field advantage in the 2012 season.
Michigan Stadium was No. 1, followed by Florida's Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and Ohio State's Ohio Stadium.
StadiumJourney.com based its rankings on won/loss record, average attendance, attendance as a percentage of capacity, and points scored/allowed by the home team, among other factors.

How many home games did you guys lose last year?
Michigan hasn't lost a home football game since Nov 20, 2010.
Argument is null.... It said #18, Lane Stadium was UVA's home stadium.... Solid source.
Michigan fans are insane crazy. The Big House is beyond intimidating and so 747 jet engine loud you can barely hear the snap count. Said no player on any opposing team, ever.
The top 30 rows are in a different zip code. Mich St at 42. I think there were some Texas high schools ranked in the 30s
On a side note I am thankful the badgers don't play at Miss St this year. Apparently huge advantage for the home team. A few questionable ones on that list. Not buying it
Lol. Ohio State has beaten them at the outhouse 3 of the last 4 meetings. Hell, in '09, it looked like a home game for tOSU. More scarlet than blue in that crowd. tOSU fans even got the O-H-I-O chant going around the stadium.
Needless to say, we're not that impressed.

Michigan has a split NC in 50 years. LMAOOO. The Big 10 is a horrible conference that's why they haven't lost in a home game since 2010. Every 1 saw on national TV what happens when they play a real opponent they get embarassed..
I, for one, am very impressed with how Michigan has managed to barely win their home games against teams they should, by all accounts, beat. What's your secret?
Appalachian State is not impressed..
They did sound tests and it got up to somewhere in the mid 120 decibels.
Hear the big house get loud. This was against wisconsin when they were still in the game...pray harbaugh michigan fans
I liked when Tom Gholston called Spartan Stadium the woodshed...then the team went on to have a 2-5 record at home.
We're back, baby!
This list seems way off to me. My top ten in no order would include UF, LSU, AU, UA, Penn St., OSU, Oregon, Michigan, Va Tech, Nebraska. Wisconsin, USCe, UGA, and A&M are others worth mentioning IMO. I haven't visited all of these venues but have visited a hand full of these and this is the way I've seen it watching CF throughout my life. Miss St. has no place on any list of this kind. I also don't think of ND and KSU as having any sizable homefield advantage.
I love going to the big house and will be there again this year but in no way is it #1. However, it is much better since the renovations. I would still put it well below Camp Randall stadium...and I was cheering for Mich when I was there. That place is nuts.

Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
It's a joke of a list no way is LSU number 9 they're either 1 or 2..
Last year doesn't count. We were down.
ECU's Dowdy Ficklen Stadium is #1
ECU grad, tOSU fan for life. Father since 1/12/13.
osu lost their toughest games at home too when they had shitty coaching in 2011...
Also I was at that game. There wasn't more scarlet than blue.
true true....51% blue, 49% scarlet
I'd say it was about 60-40. Still bad nonetheless.
Lulz at UVA being #18. Makes the list lose credibility.
I wonder where Miami is ranked? I am pretty sure they have a negative home field advantage. We had more of our fans in their stadium then they had fans.

Lutz. I've seen two games there (the only stadium I've been to in the B1G) and both times...
Once in the nosebleeds with the poors and once down low with the haves... The latter was a thousands-wide sea of middle aged house fraus. "Weeeee! That play was a peach!"
Pretty bad list. PSU wasn't even on it. No way does UVA have a better home field advantage than PSU.
You were probably there 5+ years ago before the renovation then...
True. But did they renovate the ticket holders as well?
