As a fan of college football, it is always fun to travel to new places, experience their tradition and take in the atmosphere. Sanford Stadium was full of friendly fans. The concession stands have the usual fare along with some local favorites - boiled peanuts!

Smack dab in the middle of campus. Lots of sunshine. Right across from The student center. Would love to see it on a game day. Go Dawgs!!!!

Always have enjoyed going to games at Sanford Stadium. They have added additional venders walking in the stands which has made getting drinks much easier.

Great atmosphere and speakers. Modern stadium with plenty of vendors around the stadium. If it's an SEC game beware of the traffic.

This place is magical...the traditions, the excitement, and the energy are matchless! Even if you're not a DAWG fan, you should experience a game there at least once!

The vibe in red and black on gameday is electric. The excitement is contagious. The panorama is breathtaking. I love it. I've been attending events there since 1969. The '96 Olympic soccer was phenomenal with an international flair.

Sanford Stadium is my home away from home. Lifelong Dawg fan and have been to this hallowed field of play literally all of my life. You've never seen a more beautiful campus or college football stadium. From tailgating to the Dawg Walk to the Redcoat Band playing Glory Glory with solo trumpet on top of the stadium, the video board... More

This was our first time at a Bulldogs game. The Dawgs won but the game was terrible (barely beat Nichols State). We sat on the North side, section 305 and couldn't have been hotter. It was 92 at game time but it felt like 102. The lines for drinks were long and slow. At least the drinks were nice and... More

We enjoyed a great game on the club level. It was HOT and sunny and our seats were covered and had ceiling fans.
