Yes, I know that technically the plural form of stadium would be “stadia” but I’m going with the more generally known form here. With this post I’ll be looking at some of the D2 football venues that I feel are that division’s equivalent of D1’s Big House or The Swamp.
For my look at the Coolest Football Helmets in D2 Football click here : https://glitternight.com/2012/08/11/the-coolest-helmets-in-ncaa-division-2-college-football/
6. BOWMAN-GRAY STADIUM
TEAM: WINSTON-SALEM STATE RAMS
COMMENT: This is sort of D2’s version of Ohio State’s stadium the Horseshoe, back when it really was a horseshoe.
TEAM: WINONA STATE WARRIORS
COMMENT: Night games at Maxwell Field in the bracing Minnesota air epitomize college football.
4. KIMBROUGH MEMORIAL STADIUM
TEAM: WEST TEXAS A&M BUFFALOES
COMMENT: Like the iconic stadium the Yale Bowl, Kimbrough Memorial Stadium is a classic in-ground bowl-shaped venue that nicely captures the spirit of college football’s historic lore. This may be the Lone Star Conference’s best.
TEAM: HUMBOLDT STATE LUMBERJACKS
COMMENT: A perfectly picturesque stadium for a team with an enjoyable off-beat nickname. The intimate feel of the Redwood Bowl is legendary in D2 football.
2. THE JUNGLE
TEAM: PITTSBURG (KS) STATE GORILLAS
COMMENT: What better name for the stadium of a team with an intimidating nickname like Gorillas? That’s a pic of the team’s mascot Gus the gorilla in the center of the field. “Welcome to the Jungle” appears over the stadium’s main entrance.
1. LUBBERS STADIUM
TEAM: GRAND VALLEY STATE LAKERS
COMMENT: When you consider how much of a dynasty Lakers football has been GVSU’s stadium deserves the top spot for embodying the feel of the Division 2 football playoffs.

I never heard of any of these teams but your blog is loaded with them. You’ve made a Division 2 fan out of me!
Great! I love bringing fresh eyes to the subjects I cover here.
Really cool! I’m a Winona State Alum, and I am happy to hear of the recognition. Maxwell Field has an atmosphere that no other in our conference has. However, of all the places I played in the NSIC, I have to say Augustana College in SD has the best stadium from a physical standpoint. If you can get to a game there I would highly suggest it! But the atmoshphere, no way, Winona has them beat!
Thanks for the thoughtful comment! I’m still wondering if Sioux Falls can support TWO D2 football teams.
Wooo hoooo! Luv learning about these new teams! I’ll be following those Sunday recaps that I see you do every week during football season!
Great! Very glad to hear it! Thanks!
Dennis I’ll say Pittsburg state Gorillas has the Best stadium in Div II with the largest scoreboard in div.II at 1.5 million in 2009 egual to alot of div I schools Will add seats in the furture to 11,000 Its pretty where the gorillas play with the most wins at 631 games
Thanks for stopping by! Always love hearing from the fans of the teams I write about. The Gorillas also made my list of the 20 Coolest-Named Teams in D2.
New Haven has best stadium see here http://youtu.be/e_DZXqzD8kA
That is a beauty!
I think that with the new “Jungletron” which is bigger than almost all D1 schools. It should easily take the top spot away from Grand Valley… My high school stadium was more up to date than Grand Valley’s from personal experience… Yeah they have had great teams in the past but some how that never translated to thier stadium.. Grand Valley would be outside of my top 15 only taking into consideration the stadium and not the teams record.. List looks good otherwise… out of all the stadiums I have been to though Pitt States definately takes the cake.
Thanks for the comment! That’s a pretty persuasive argument for the Jungletron giving Pitt State’s stadium the edge.
Kimbrough is a great stadium. very steep banks of stands that put the loud and rowdy West Texas Buffalo fans right on top of the action.
Great place to watch a night game.
Always good to hear from the fans themselves! Thanks for stopping by!
Pitt st univ. to have new field turf in june 2012 Pitt st and univ. of Neb. was the first schools to get the field turf and Pittsburg high is getting new field turm as of May 2012 the first high school in kansas to get it

THE JUNGLE DUDE THE JUNGLE
I take it you like that stadium?
Winona State – the best damn stadium!
They should make that the official name of the stadium!
The Redwood Bowl shud have been # 1!
I can understand your thinking on that!!
None of these are as good as UAM’s Cotton “Boll” Stadium!
Ha! That is a pretty nice stadium!
The Tarleton State Texans have the best house in D2! Suck on it!
How will we get it in our mouths?
Winoana State should have won.
That could be.
LUBBERS STADIUM! END OF STORY!
Was it a happy ending?
Redwood Bowl got my vote!
Noted! Thank you!
Buffaloes had the best stadium! Love the overhead shot!
Glad you like their stadium.
I would love to attend a game at The Jungle!
The Redwood Bowl is the best!

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
They are considering a ban on these compounds due to concerns that the paralysis could become permanent.

You’re in reality a great webmaster. The website loading pace is incredible. It seems that you’re doing any special trick. Furthermore, the contents are a work of art. you have done a great task on this subject!
Good selection of teams.
Those seem small.
That’s because they’re division 2 not division 1.
My brother played football there!
Good to hear!
I really appreciate your work, Great post.
These stadiums are okay I guess.
