    Fresno State Bulldogs -- Bulldog Stadium

    According to this seating chart, the Fresno State band sits behind the north endzone:



    Small image, but sure looks like band stuff is set up behind the far endzone:



    However, the seating chart image on the Fresno State website says they sit in S38:



    Confusion...

    Kentucky Wildcats -- Commonwealth Stadium

    Kentucky - Commonwealth Stadium

    Section: Front half between 106/107



    So I'm not 100% sure on this, but I believe from looking at a few images that I have the band section here. I'll start with the seating chart; I believe the band sits between Sections 106 and 107 in the pink student section:



    My photographic proof, however, is blurry; in the picture below, you can see the shine of instruments and a bandleader ladder in front of the section between the numbers 106 and 107 on the opposite end of the field from the photographer:



    If you look on the left side of this picture in the same sections, you can just about make out band members in uniforms and the shine of instruments once again:

    Mississippi State Bulldogs -- Davis Wade Stadium

    Mississippi State - Davis Wade Stadium

    Section: Furthermost Right Section of North Bleachers

    The band appears to sit in the Furthermost Right Section of North Bleachers:



    You can see the band in their seats directly on the right of the north bleachers here:

    Well, the picture I posted is from their Facebook account ...

    Let's just add more f-ing confusion to this, shall we? Here's a pic from the Cal game, as you mentioned, they're in the end zone:

    That's from 9/17 ...

    The picture I posted is from their game 10/9 versus San Jose State:


    So ... that suggests that maybe they stick the band where they have room? So for more popular games, they're in the endzone (which is General Admission), and otherwise they're in the regular stands?

    Ugh.

    I must say that I'm very impressed about how many band sections we've locked down in such a short amount of time; good work to everyone for joining in the search! I fear, at this point, that some of the schools we're working with have smaller fanbases and probably won't be providing a lot of the detailed images that we need to figure things out. It's pretty difficult to know if an empty section is the band section when half the stadium doesn't have anybody sitting in it either haha. Nevertheless, I will not quit!

    Look for Facebook accounts for the band. That helped me figure out both Nevada and Fresno State.

    Rutgers Scarlet Knights -- Rutgers Stadium

    This one is a little bit tricky because Rutgers Stadium used to have one open end to it and now that open end has been closed; however, the pictures that I've found seem to show that the band sits on the field just in front of Sections 111 and 112:



    The bottom right-hand corner of the following picture shows the band on the turf just behind the endzone; it is from 2008.



    This 2007 picture shows the band on the right-hand side of the picture in front of the corner seating:

    SMU Mustangs -- Gerald J. Ford Stadium

    SMU - Gerald J. Ford

    Section: Left side of 122




    This one took a good bit of detective work as well, but I believe that the band section is Section 122 and the band sits on the left side of that section when you look at it from the field. Here's the seating chart:



    And here's a photo of the band on the field; if you look closely enough at the empty Section 122 in the first few rows, you can see the red stands presumably used to hold music sheets; there is also a platform for the bandleader to stand on in front of that section:



    Unfortunately, that's the best image I could find for that side of the stadium.

    Texas Tech Red Raiders -- Jones AT&T Stadium

    Texas Tech - Jones AT&T Stadium

    Section: Split between 20 & 21





    Not the best image to work from, but I'm fairly certain that I know the band section--or at the least the general area--here; looks like the band is split between Sections 20 & 21:



    I'm basing my assumption on the different-colored section of people being the band because that is the student section as far as I can tell working from charts and photographs; here's the picture below:

    i guess section 130 and section 103 for both bands. (EDIT - 103 looks right, looks like 128 for other band; cdj)


    AWAY (2007) - 128



    HOME (2007) - 103

    I think your right. I guess they sit in the endzone only for sell outs most likely.

    So are we saying S38 or S37? Based on this pic, I think it's S38:

    That empty area to the top are steps or something. They go empty during games.

    Since the game has each stadium full at the start, I am going to put the endzone seats as Nevada's band spot on the spreadsheet. Thanks for the pic and info, OSUCowboyofMD!

    Western Kentucky Hilltoppers -- Houchens Industries - L.T. Smith Stadium

    No photographic proof whatsoever here, but I have two separate seating charts which would seem to correllate a band section; can't be 100% without pictures, but I haven't been able to find good photos of the stadium.

    Here is an incomplete StubHub seating chart listing where the band sits:



    The .PDF file of the seating chart is slightly different--sections aren't labeled with letters and there are seats on both sides--but the section identified as band seating in the StubHub image corresponds to student seating Section 135:

    Rutgers - Rutgers Stadium

    Section: Front of 138



    Paakaa - I've found a 2010 pic that has them in the bleachers, but not sure what section. Appears to be with students.



    Here's a 2009 pic of Rutgers.
