From the aptly named "Big House" in Michigan to a little baseball stadium in Vermont, here is every state's largest sports venue on the basis of maximum seating capacity. Though football dominates, there are a few wild cards in the mix.

For the purposes of this list, we excluded auto-racing tracks, though all instances in which they would be No. 1 are noted.

Note: With auto-racing tracks included, Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton would be No. 1, seating roughly 125,000 people.

CFB 24 8 Largest stadiums in every US state 31910356 Illinois -- Soldier Field Illinois+--+Soldier+Field CFB

The home of the NFL's Chicago Bears seats 61,500 people and leads the way by a very narrow margin. Memorial Stadium in Champaign, home to the University of Illinois football team, would be No. 1 if not for a recent seat reduction that dropped it down to just over 60,000.

Note: With auto-racing tracks included, Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet would be tops with about 75,000 seats.

In the closest race of the bunch, Kansas University's Memorial Stadium — with an official capacity of 50,071 — is just 71 seats ahead of rival Kansas State's 50,000-seat Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium. With standing room and extra seating area accounted for, Kansas State's facility has actually recorded the higher record attendance number.

Note: With auto-racing tracks included, Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas, would rank No. 1 with over 72,000 seats.
