The fans' top 5 home field advantages in sports
1. Fenway Park
The home of the Boston Red Sox is the oldest venue in major-league baseball (opened in 1912) and the Fenway Faithful are always there to back up their team. The imposing Green Monster can always give opposing outfielders another wrinkle they're not used to as well.
2. Lambeau Field
The Green Bay Packers have won 11 NFL championships (three Super Bowls) and The Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field has clearly been an advantage. According to packers.com, the team is 15-3 in postseason games played at Lambeau. While the Packers have grown used to playing in the elements, opposing teams aren't always as prepared.
3. Tiger Stadium
For LSU football fans there's nothing like hearing "It's Saturday Night in Death Valley...and here come your Fighting Tigers of LSU." The on-campus facility holds 92,400 fans, who once cheered so loudly it registered on a local Richter Scale. The Tigers are 54-10 from 2000-08 at home.
4. Cameron Indoor Stadium
It's hard enough facing perennial power Duke, but when you add the Cameron Crazies, with their creative chants and antics, visiting teams can feel like the whole world is against them for 40 minutes of basketball.
5. Bronco Stadium
The "smurf turf" of Bronco Stadium has certainly been a tough place for opponents to visit. As of Oct. 2, the Broncos are 66-2 at home since the 1999 season with the only losses being to Washington State in 2001 and then-No. 18 Boston College in the 2005 MPC Computers Bowl. The Broncos have not lost a home conference game since the season finale in 1998 (38 in a row).
