The NCAA this week revealed a video (see below) list of the five “Loudest arenas” in college basketball with University Arena (otherwise known as the Pit, of course), checking in at No. 5.
After the 2010 renovation, the Pit seats 15,411 for basketball games and, as the video below states, is 37 feet below ground adding to the noise level as sound has nowhere to escape.
The top five loudest arenas according to NCAA.com:
5. The Pit, University of New Mexico
4. Gallagher-Iba Arena, Oklahoma State
3. Carrier Dome, Syracuse
2. Cameron Indoor Stadium, Duke
1. Allen Fieldhouse, Kansas
