NCAA ranks LSU's Death Valley the loudest college stadium

With a capacity of 92,542, Tiger Stadium’s roar has helped LSU win 71 percent of its home games.

These lists seem to come out every year, but the NCAA's "High Five" video segment took a shot at ranking the NCAA's five loudest stadiums. LSU's Tiger Stadium, otherwise known as Death Valley, came in at number one. The full top five was:

No. 5: Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech

No. 4: Camp Randall Stadium, Wisconsin

No. 3:  Kyle Field, Texas A&M

No. 2: Autzen Stadium, Oregon

No. 1: Tiger Stadium, LSU

It's hard to argue with the five as presented, although Ohio Stadium at Ohio State (the Horseshoe), Bryant-Denny Stadium at Alabama, Sanford Stadium at Georgia, Williams-Brice Stadium at South Carolina, Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor (the Big House) and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at Florida (the Swamp) all get pretty deafening in big games too. The trouble with making these sorts of lists is how do you rank noise? Is it an average of the loudest moments from every game, the highest decibel level reached during a season or just an arbitrary feeling?

Did the NCAA get it right, or did it completely miss the mark?
