Notre Dame's following became so great following their rise as the first "national" team that the stadium capacities of many teams were far too small to accommodate the expected crowds. As a result, oftentimes games were scheduled for much larger stadiums in big cities, sometimes hundreds of miles away from either campus. The last time we looked, neither State College nor South Bend were particularly close to Philadelphia, but in 1928 neither State College nor South Bend had stadiums seating over 60,000, as did Philadelphia's Franklin Field.
