From the classic spike to the Tony Gonzalez slam dunk, end zones have always been a place of spectacular celebrations! They are a gift offered to the player brave enough to take on the defensive squad to turn six for his team. In tribute to the twirls, dances & organized choreography we have found the top five end zones to celebrate in.

5. University of Guelph
We had to go north of the border to start our list but it was well worth it! This prominent Canadian University showcases stunning black and red checkered board end zones. A fun fact about football in Canada is that the end zones are 20 yards deep instead of the traditional 10. Should you ever be in Ontario, make it a point to stop at Alumni Stadium!
4. University of Maryland
Known for more than their crab cakes, U of M comes in 4th on our list with their patriotic end zone design. Inspired by their state flag, the Terrapins incorporated the design into their field to make for a truly unique look.
3. Cincinnati Bengals
Did you really think an NFL team wouldn’t pierce the list? The Bengals officially own the rights to the coolest end zones in the league. Players must play with caution though…those claws are sharp!
2. University of Wyoming
Installed at 7220 feet in elevation, the end zones at Jonah Field aren’t only regarded as the most unique but the highest in the NCAA! The bold Wyoming lettering overlaying the never before seen mountain design has earned the Cowboys our #2 spot!
1. University of Notre Dame
The field at Legendary Notre Dame Stadium is undoubtedly the most iconic football installation in the world. It’s only fitting that the traditional diagonal stripes in both end zones earn the #1 spot on our list. The University recently announced that after 84 years of playing on grass, the fighting Irish are converting their stadium field to FieldTurf for the 2014 season.
