Travel Channel names Rupp Arena top college basketball venue in the nation


Rupp Arena has always been considered one of the most famous and historic basketball venues in the nation. The Big Blue Nation continually breaks attendance records, and with 577 wins and just 68 total losses since the arena opened in 1976, it’s obvious beating the Cats in Rupp is highly improbable, as well.

Back in 2017, the BBN even broke a record for the loudest indoor crowd roar of all time, a record they held for 17 days.

And the accolades continue to pile up.

The Travel Channel recently ranked all of the top venues in the nation, and Rupp Arena was listed at the very top, beating out the Phog Allen Fieldhouse at Kansas, Pauley Pavilion at UCLA, and Cameron Indoor at Duke, among others.

Nicely done, Rupp Arena.

Nothing beats it.

    Cannot trust a list that has Vanderbilt out of the bottom 10. That place should be illegal.
