A lil bit of Neyland in Memphis. This is an older photo submitted by a reader who wrote: "This was one of the most fun things I've ever done.

Size Matters Most: CFB's Biggest Stadiums

Neyland Stadium in the Fall. Seats: 100,011. Neyland Stadium broke ground in 1921 and was named Shields-Watkins Field. The stadium was renamed in 1962 for General Robert Neyland who served in the U.S. Army, as Volunteers head coach for numerous spells between 1926 and 1952, and was the designer of the revamped stadium. As of 2010, it is the ninth largest non-racing stadium in the world.
