I haven't been to many, unless there is that period in my early 20's that is very hazy.

Spartan Stadium
Michigan 
Western
Central
Rose Bowl
Outback
Dolphin Stadium (although that was for a baseball game, but U. Miami plays there)

That's probably about it.

I will only visit one college football stadium.

Not many. Never even to UM, and never wanted to, and my buddies at MSU weren't into it enough to travel to road games. So for me it is:

Spartan Stadium
Orange Bowl (Stadium)
Sun Life Stadium
FIU stadium (not sure if that's the name of the stadium)
and next month going to FAU's stadium.

And then bowl games, which were all home stadiums for college teams:
Rose Bowl
Raymond James (Outback)
Citrus Bowl (Citrus/Cap One)
(Also the Orange Bowl, but Sun Life Stadium was covered above)

Seems odd that I've been to more different stadiums for bowl games than I have for regular season games.

I don't travel well.

In Chronological Order:
Owen Field (now Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium)
Lewis Field (now Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, OK)
Spartan Stadium
Rose Bowl

I also spent 6 years as a student in Urbana-Champaign without ever attending an Illinois football game. I don't think I missed anything.

I have not been to many. Spartan Stadium, the big outhouse, central Michigan, the Kibby Dome (Idaho) Illinois, Colorado, Washington (the old one) and Wyoming.

Spartan Stadium
UM
Purdue
Lucas Oil
Wichita State - I went there when they still had football. The stadium is still there. Maybe they use it for soccer now.
West Texas State

Haven't been to a lot of true road games. Purdont. It got me thinking of how many teams I've seen play over the 50 years I've attended games.

All the B10 teams except Rutgers (or if I did go to the Rutgers game, I don't remember it), Syracuse, Oregon, Oregon State, Central, Boise State, Notre Dame, Hawaii, Bowling Green, Kent State, Air Force, Rice, Marshall. Pitt, Cal, FAU, Youngstown State, Jacksonville State, Furman

I'm in the "not many" camp.

The Big Hole
Spartan Stadium

That's it......was at the Tangerine Bowl in Orlando for a World Series of Rock but that doesn't count under this system.

Thanks Bob. I feel better now. Reading over some of those impressive lists made me feel like a failure at college football fandom. Will you bend your rules so I can count stadiums I've seen on the TeeVee?

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

oddly enough, pretty sure one of the games I saw at East Carolina was vs. WVU - probably about '88 or '89.

I remember they were ranked in the top 5 (maybe 10) at the time.
