The Kibbie Dome in Moscow, Idaho, the smallest stadium in the FBS, seats about 16,500. (University of Idaho courtesy photo)
The Kibbie Dome is like no other venue in college football. It sits like an enormous barrel half-buried into the University of Idaho campus and, in fact, once was referred to as "a Campbell's Soup can cut in half" by a visiting coach. It ranks as both an architectural marvel and the smallest home field in the Football Bowl Subdivision, holding about 16,500 fans. Inside, the roof of laminated wooden beams arches over a field sunken below ground level, and new translucent panels over the end zones allow a flood of natural light. Goalposts are attached to the walls about 5 yards behind the end zone -- rather than from a post in the ground -- with those walls padded for players' protection. The Dome has been called too small and outdated by some, yet embraced by others who've seen (and heard) it at its packed-to-full-volume glory/Doug Williams, ESPN Playbook. More here.
