Before Massachusetts returned to Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium a few years back, fans and students were forced to make the laborious trek to Gillette Stadium some two hours away. It's no wonder the cavernous home of the New England Patriots often resulted in crowds under 15,000. With the Minutemen's move, the University of Connecticut now holds the honor of the longest distance one must travel when it comes to college football teams that play in off-campus stadiums.
On the flip side, a school like San Jose State plays off-campus, but it's only a mile or so down the street.
