This is one case where the movies didn’t lie. College football is serious business in the U.S. The University of Michigan football stadium, known as “The Big House” has a capacity of 107,000 – making it the second-largest football stadium in the world – and it’s sold out for every game.

Obviously, the movies exaggerate a bit. Students do attend events that aren’t Friday night football games, but if you go to a school like Ohio State or Notre Dame, it’s recommended you go to at least one game during your time at the school for the experience.
