In Game

Bryant-Denny Stadium is the fifth largest college football stadium in the United States with a capacity of 101,821. This massive stadium was originally named Denny Stadium after the fifteenth president of the University and was renamed in 1975 by the state legislature to Bryant-Denny Stadium to honor Coach Paul William “Bear” Bryant, who brought the Crimson Tide six national titles. All home games in Tuscaloosa, Alabama have been sold out since 1988, which is equally impressive and not surprising as the halls of the University of Alabama have been walked by some incredible athletes as well as coaches.

College football is huge in Alabama, and with their many accomplishments, Bryant-Denny Stadium regularly reaches its full capacity. You’ll feel the energy and excitement of an Alabama football game before the kickoff when the crowd erupts into cheering and screaming as their beloved team takes the field. The amount of energy and noise that the Crimson Tide produce is so loud that you’ll feel the entire stadium shake around you.

Once the game gets going the crowd gets even louder and more intense as that’s when the fans break out the poms. All throughout the game fans wave around pom poms making it look like the crowd is moving, which gets in the head of the opposition. The poms are quite a sight to behold and an even greater thing to be a part of so make sure to bring your pom poms when you make your trip to Bryant-Denny Stadium.

It’s not just the crowd that makes a trip to Bryant-Denny Stadium well worth your while, but the product on the field is also top notch. You’ll be in for a treat regardless of when you come to Tuscaloosa to see a game as you’ll be able to witness one of the finest teams in the country take the field. The Crimson Tide have finished in the top 10 each of the last seven years and have won three National Championships over the same period. You’ll also get to witness some of the biggest and fiercest rivalries in college football if you come during SEC play. The Crimson Tide’s winning tradition and die-hard fans make a trip to Bryant-Denny Stadium a great an experience that you’ll never forget.

    Ne’er to join another meeting
    ‘Neath their hallowed walls.

    Heart bound to heart will beat
    Year by year, the ages through
    Until in Heaven we meet.

    So, farewell, dear Alma Mater
    May thy name, we pray,
    Be rev’renced ever, pure and stainless
    As it is today.

    Faithful, loyal, firm and true
    Heart bound to heart will beat
    Year by year, the ages through
    Until in Heaven we meet.
