KU's Allen Fieldhouse listed as No. 10 on SI list of top college sports venues

With college sports on summer vacation, one national sports magazine has decided to rile as many fans as possible.

Allen Fieldhouse, home of Kansas basketball, is the 10th-best college sports venue, according to, the Web site for the magazine "Sports Illustrated."

Just to get you Jayhawks fired up, that's one spot below Charles River, home to Head of the Charles Regatta. Are they kidding? Does a boat race venue really count?

But Kansas fans can't be too upset. After all, the list doesn't include sports venues at Ohio State, Notre Dame or Louisiana State, just to name a few.

The Rose Bowl was No. 1.

Here's the entire list:

1. Rose Bowl (UCLA football)2. Cameron Indoor Stadium (Duke basketball)3. The Swamp (Florida football)4. The Big House (Michigan football)5. Rosenblatt Stadium (College World Series)6. The Palestra (Penn basketball)7. Michie Stadium (Army football)8. Mariucci Arena (Minnesota hockey)9.Charles River (Head of the Charles Regatta)10. Allen Fieldhouse (Kansas basketball)
