For various reasons, this will be the toughest rankings thus far this year. We understand that there may be some pushback for this one, but it’s all in the love of the game.

Without further ado, here’s a look back at the top five atmospheres from Week 7:

Honorable Mention – Alumni Stadium

So what? We like a student section singing in harmony to Mr. Brightside way more than we should.

Although it must have been a slap in the face that LSU was scheduled to play at 11 a.m. CT during Florida week, you have to give credit to the Tiger fans for settling their alarm clocks and answering the early call.

Sanford Stadium: where dreams come to die.

Que Will Levis quote.

Sure, Will. Whatever you say.

3. Neyland Stadium

Here is where things begin to get tricky. There is no denying that Neyland Stadium was a special place on Saturday night. Some may even argue that it would compete for atmosphere of the year.

If you were to look at some of the sights and the sounds that came out of Knoxville over the first three quarters of the game, it would be hard to argue that this stage didn’t, at the minimum, earn the top spot on this week’s list.

Then, things hit the fan…literally. Due to some intoxicated patrons and a few questionable calls, trash began falling from the stands onto the field and in the direction of the Ole Miss sidelines.

Things got so threatening in fact, that Tennessee security asked both bands and both cheerleading squads to exit the playing field for their own safety. It was an ugly end to a memorable night and as a result, we’re penalizing Neyland’s spot on this list two notches down. And honestly, that is being a little generous.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Cincinnati has the most underrated fans in college football. #Bamawantsus
