Athlon Sports had 12 SEC experts rank their favorite SEC stadiums and LSU's Tiger Stadium was ranked No. 1.

The voting was based on atmosphere, fan support, home-field advantage, amenities, tailgating, surrounding campus, and the college town. Some of the voters included Tim Brando, Dan Wolken, and Steven Godfrey.

Here are the results:

1. Tiger Stadium, LSU
Opened: 1924 Capacity: 100,000
Be it the vast and unique tailgating menu or Richter Scale-registering fans, few places in the nation can send chills down your spine like Tiger Stadium. As one of the loudest and most rabid atmospheres in the nation, LSU boasts one of the most daunting home-field advantages in college football — especially at night. A $70 million renovation is underway to push Tiger Stadium’s capacity to 100,000, only furthering a hallowed reputation as one of the nation’s top venues. There is a reason Tiger Stadium got eight first-place votes in our poll.

I wasn't nearly as impressed with Kyle Field as I thought I would have been. The open end killed the noise so maybe the renovation will change that. Kyle Field is no Tiger Stadium.

Unless you mean Kyle Field should have serious no. 1 consideration. As LSU fan I say Kyle Field is a close second.
