Yale Bowl, CT: This is the second oldest active college stadium in the country and the largest stadium when it was constructed (1914). Yale Bowl was emulated because its "bowl" shape provided fine views for the spectators from all seats. It also commemorates Yale's influence in early college football due to its noted player-coach-official, Walter Camp.
