"Tampa Bay Bucs at Raymond James Stadium" Top 5 Page for this destination Pro Football Tip by Ewingjr98

Pro Football, Tampa: 4 reviews and 7 photos

Raymond James Stadium was completed in 1998 and is home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, University of South Florida Bulls, and the New Year’s Day Outback Bowl. It is located north of downtown just across the street from Yankee's Legends Field. The stadium was built at a cost of $170 million and it seats 66,000.

I attended the Bucs game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010. This was almost a home game for the Steelers with a huge crowd in Black and Gold, waving Terrible Towels. The Steelers manhandled the Bucs, winning 38-13, while rushing for over 200 yards. Charlie Batch looked like a Hall of Famer in this game, throwing for three touchdowns in his first start in three years.

After the game we happened upon the area where the Steelers walk out to their buses, and we got to see Charlie Batch, Troy Polamalu, Chris Kemoeatu, Mike Wallace and others.
