ukstadium-d As we inch closer and closer to football season, it's time for more of those preseason rankings lists to pop up, rating schools on everything from venues to tailgating attire. Today's comes from AthlonSports.com, who rates the stadiums in the SEC from best to worst. As you might expect, Kentucky's Commonwealth Stadium didn't fare too well, coming in at #13, ahead of only Vanderbilt. Here's the complete list: 1. Tiger Stadium, LSU 2. Sanford Stadium, Georgia 3. Neyland Stadium, Tennessee 4. Kyle Field, Texas A&M 5. Bryant-Denny Stadium, Alabama 6. Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Florida 7. Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Arkansas 8. Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn 9. Williams-Brice Stadium, South Carolina 10. Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Ole Miss 11. Davis Wade Stadium, Mississippi State 12. Memorial Stadium, Missouri
13. Commonwealth Stadium, Kentucky Opened: 1973 Capacity: 67,692 2012 Attendance: 49,691 (41st) From a percentage standpoint, the Wildcats posted the worst 2012 home attendance in the SEC. However, that had more to do with the poor play of the team than anything else. When this team is good, Big Blue Nation is as loud and passionate as any stadium with less than 70,000 seats in the nation. This venue has witnessed some historic moments – i.e., the Bluegrass Miracle – and Mark Stoops hopes his Spring Game attendance numbers (est. 50,381) are a preview of things to come this fall.
14. Vanderbilt Stadium, Vanderbilt You have to think that after Commonwealth Stadium's $110 million renovations, it will be higher on this list. We've been told to expect renderings by the end of the summer.
