An interesting look at spring game attendance
- by Doug Samuels 1 year ago
While there were a few surprises when you look at the final spring game attendance figures from the past few weeks, one thing should not surprise you. The SEC dominated.
Seven of the top ten attendance figures came out of the SEC, with Texas (#7), Nebraska (#4), and Ohio State (#10) occupying the other three spots. To no one's surprise, Auburn and Alabama occupied the top two spots, while Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, Texas A&M, and Georgia rounded out the other SEC programs in the top ten.
Even Vanderbilt, who drew 14,000 fans to their spring game, beat out the attendance of five Big Ten schools (Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maryland, Purdue, Illinois).
For a full list of the rankings, as well as the attendance figures, take a look at the chart that the guys over at SB Nation put together.
The bottom four teams (Georgia State, Tulsa, Hawaii, and Akron) failed to crack the 2,000 person mark.
