B1G Stadium Sizes

Given some of the comments I heard surrounding the Rutgers – Penn State game about the size of Rutgers stadium, I was curious to see how the stadium stacked up to the competition.  I knew the stadium would not be in the top half of the list, but I was pleased to see that 1) Rutgers was not in the bottom 3, and 2) that it won’t take much to get Rutgers up near the middle of the pack.  My expectation is that a solid few years in the B1G will go a long way toward getting Rutgers stadium over 60,000.  Which, knowing how loud folks from the NJ area can be, will make it sound like there are 120,000 are in there when big games are played.
