Virginia Tech football ranking on EA Sports College Football 25 stadium list is extremely low

Virginia Tech is in the Top 25, but some of the schools ranked ahead of them are head-scratching, to say the least.

Ten years ago, EA Sports discontinued their college football video franchise, but this summer on July 19, they are set to release College Football Top 25. There has been a lot of hype surrounding the game and quite frankly, college football fans can't wait to get their hands on it.

This week, EA Sports is calling it "Rankings Week" where they release a bunch of parts of the game such as stadium sightss and sounds, top offenses, top defenses, overall team rankings, and toughest places to play. Tuesday, the latter was released and you can say it was somewhat disrespectful to Virginia Tech and Blacksburg.

Virginia Tech comes in at No. 17 in Top 25 Toughest Places to Play

The Top 25 list of toughest places to play is one that is well, head-scratching. Lane Stadium, which is without a doubt a Top 10 stadium in college football, came in at No. 17 and they came in behind some really questionable stadiums.

Texas A&M, Kyle Field, came in at the top spot, followed by Bryant-Denny Stadium (Alabama), Tuger Stadium (LSU), Ohio Stadium (Ohio State) and Sanford Stadium (Georgia) round out the Top 5. The highest ranked ACC school is Florida State, and Clemson's Memorial Stadium was No. 12.

There is no doubt that FSU and Clemson are difficult places to play, but you can't say that Virginia Tech is not a Top 10 stadium in the country of the toughest places to play compared to some of the ones ahead of them. Camp Randle at Wisconsin is a Top 10 toughest place to play? Now there is no shame in making the Top 20 for Virginia Tech, but not being closer to the Top 10, if not in the Top 10 is somewhat head-scratching.

It will be interesting to see how the stadium sights and Enter Sandman look and sound once the game is released next month.
