Located at 5,100 feet above sea level, University Stadium is one of the highest venues in the nation. There is even a warning as opposing teams enter the football field that warns them of acute altitude sickness, which is a nice way to intimidate the opposition as they take the field. It’s not every day you can say that you attended a football game at almost a mile above sea level.
You’ll also find that University Stadium provides a beautiful scenic view of the Sandia Mountains to those sitting on the east side of the stadium. The gorgeous view is worth the price of admission alone and makes you feel like you’re taking in a one of a kind spectacle.
The fans at New Mexico also provide an excellent atmosphere, as the Red Menace are some of the most die-hard fans in all of the college football. While basketball may be the sports New Mexico is best known for the Lobos faithful still show plenty of pride when it comes to cheering on their Lobos football team.
The beauty of the Sandia Mountains and the Red Menace create an outstanding game day experience that any college football fan would love.
