BOWLING GREEN – THE DOYT

Doyt L. Perry Stadium, fondly named “The Doyt,” is the home of Bowling Green football. The construction is rather typical for a Middle American Conference arena. It’s small, yet cozy and certainly comes with devoted fans, making this place uninviting for visitors. In 2007, they tore out the north grandstand and made room for the […]

MIAMI (OH) – YAGER STADIUM

Lost amongst the farms and forests of western Ohio lies Yager Stadium. If Highway 732 is chosen as the route to reach this destination, you might feel lost yourself. A limited amount of signs provide hope that Oxford is approaching. However, after meandering through a labyrinth of scenery fit for Robin Hood, signs indicating an […]

AKRON – INFOCISION STADIUM

  Some folks may react unfavorably about the move to InfoCision Stadium from the classic Rubber Bowl that hosted Zips games since 1940.  However, the venerable old stadium required much repair, and the dream of a brand new facility on campus drew closer to reality.  In 2009, Akron opened InfoCision Stadium and parked it right […]

KENT STATE – DIX STADIUM

The space between Cleveland and Pittsburgh is awfully quiet, but there is some life in the otherwise sleepy town of Kent when gameday arrives. Kent State University is located ten miles outside of Akron, making the Zips their most heated rival. The Golden Flashes have their home in Dix Stadium. It very recently was renovated […]

TOLEDO – GLASS BOWL

When entering the city of Toledo, it may be challenging to locate clues that suggest that it’s gameday.  There are not hoards of people shuffling toward the stadium, or bars overflowing with anxious fans, or even many cars zipping around with Toledo flags attached to windows.  When nearing campus, the reason becomes clear.  The University of […]

OHIO – PEDEN STADIUM

  Peden Stadium in Athens, Ohio is another hidden gem of college football that few people know about. Only an hour south of Columbus, Athens appears as a cute brick laden college community, but only after the highway dwindles from three lanes, to two, and down to one. The campus is visible from the highway […]

CENTRAL MICHIGAN – KELLY SHORTS STADIUM

Central Michigan University is an unexpected surprise hidden among the nothingness in the middle of Michigan. Driving into Mount Pleasant provides immediate clues that you have arrived onto a college campus. Folks decked in maroon and gold trickle around the area and it all flows toward Kelly Shorts Stadium where just outside awaits a massive […]

EASTERN MICHIGAN – RYNEARSON STADIUM

Lost between the shadows of Michigan Stadium’s 111,000 seat “Big House” and the metropolitan area of Detroit, Rynearson Stadium sits quietly off the campus of Eastern Michigan University. With the Wolverines only ten minutes away, EMU really gets lost in the shuffle. It’s almost like a gathering place where fans who couldn’t get a ticket […]

BALL STATE – SCHEUMANN STADIUM

Although the experience at Scheumann Stadium might remind you that of a high school setting, the interest of Ball State athletics still shines through the hardy visitors that come to view their ailing Cardinal football team. Large banners reading, “Go Ball State” and “Welcome to the Red Zone” greet fans arriving into Muncie. The Ball […]

WESTERN MICHIGAN – WALDO STADIUM

Our directions to Western Michigan University had us parking far from the stadium. Opting to walk through campus instead of taking the shuttle, we became somewhat lost among the labyrinth of buildings between the parking lot and stadium. At certain points, the scene felt like a ghost campus. Standing completely still among this concrete wonderland, […]
