While the Texas Longhorns have struggled on the field, the experience of fans watching them continues to be ranked among the best in the nation.

In a new top-to-bottom ranking of college football stadium experiences, Stadium Journey ranks Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium number seven.

Here's what they had to say about DKR:

It's hard to match the pageantry and tradition of Longhorn football fans. Anyone who has watched college football is familiar with the iconic 'Hook 'em Horns' hand signal. It's quite a sight to see a stadium of 100k+ pumping the signal high in unison during the Texas fight song.

Stadium Journey says it uses "official correspondents" to rank stadiums on a number of criteria including the food & beverage inside the stadium, the overall atmosphere, the neighborhood where the stadium resides, the fans, access to and inside the stadium, overall return on investment and an "extras" category for any unique features not covered in the other categories.

The list includes all 128 FBS teams.. Here is the top 10, which includes four Texas-based stadiums:

1. Notre Dame

2. Alabama

3. Ohio State

4. Michigan

5. Texas A&M

6. Navy

7. Texas

8. Texas Tech

9. Baylor

10. Florida State

The next-closest Texas team was TCU (42), followed by UTSA (58), SMU (73), Houston (87), North Texas (104), UTEP (110) and Texas State (121).
