    Technically, the Orange Bowl was a non-NFL stadium when it hosted II and III, but I get your point. Was IV held in a pro football stadium?

    Super Bowl IV was played at Tulane Stadium which was also home to the Saints prior to the opening of the Superdome. Rice Stadium was the first college-only stadium to host the Super Bowl.

    The first seven SBs were played at either the LA Coliseum (Rams), Orange Bowl (Dolphins) and Tulane Stadium (Saints).
