Virginia Tech crowd noise at Lane Stadium record-setting against Clemson

virginia tech-football-virginia tech hokies

The Virginia Tech-Clemson matchup Saturday night didn’t fulfill expectations, but the Hokies still entered the record books.

When Virginia Tech took the field to Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”, the crowd noised reached a decimal reading of 126.2 db. That is the fifth-loudest recorded moment in college football history.

Opposing fans should keep in mind that this is only “recorded” history, so there’s probably hundreds of moments that were just as loud but not recorded. Even still, it’s impressive how loud and pumped the Hokies fans were to face the defending national champions Saturday.

Here are the games that had the top five loudest recorded moments in college football history:

  1. Husky Stadium, Washington, 1992 – 133.6 dB
  2. Memorial Stadium, Clemson, 2007 – 132 dB
  3. Tiger Stadium, LSU, 1998 – 130 dB
  4. Autzen Stadium, Oregon, 2012 – 127 dB
  5. Lane Stadium, Virginia Tech, 2017 – 126.2 dB
