The biggest American football stadium is Michigan Stadium (Ann Arbor, MI) --capacity 107,501

Michigan Stadium is the largest college-owned structure of its kind designed solely for (American) football, according to the University of Michigan online media guide.

The "largest attendance" at an American football game was at Michigan Stadium in 2003 versus Ohio State, when 112,118 people were in attendance. That is the National Collegiate Athletic Associaition regular-season record.

I also found this, about baskeball and hockey (both held by USA collegiate games):

Michigan State University played the "BasketBowl" at Ford Field (Detriot, MI) against the University of Kentucky on December 13, 2003 and drew a world record basketball crowd of 78,129.

On Oct. 6, 2001, "The Cold War" hockey game between Michigan State University and the University Michigan drew 74,554 fans to Spartan Stadium (East Lansing, MI). Tickets for "The Cold War" were suspended after nine business days.
