It's interesting that while they list the schools with the biggest attendance increases from 2015, they have no such list for the biggest decreases from 2015.

We finished 15th in 2016 but that will obviously drop if for no other reason than the stadium reconfiguration.


And Michigan has 8 home games...

simply because they don't win often on the road or in neutral sites.

Michigan of course. It said "Our Stadium is bigger than your stadium".

Seems like they are compensating for something...


And they fill it up every Saturday, one way or another.

How does Stanford justify

their football expenses with only 44,000 fans? East Carolina does equally well as that.

U$C & Ucla should be embarrassed, given the size of their stadiums and the city.


The UCLA and USC numbers aren't that bad

Particularly given the return of the Rams, who outdrew both college teams. UCLA and USC did considerably better than other college teams in NFL cities, such as Miami, Pitt, Minnesota, Houston, and Rice. They easily outdrew Cal and Stanford, and even outdrew Washington, which had a dominant season and won the Pac-12.

Perhaps the most pathetic showing on that list was Purdue, which ranked last in Big Ten attendance and had an average crowd of only half the capacity of Ross-Ade Stadium.


i assume that their alumni rolls

The only way to properly reconfigure that hellhole

Significant reduction in seating..

from 93K to 77K but people will actually get real space to sit the modern fat ass down.

I wonder what ND stadium would hold if we all got a nice generous space to sit and be comfortable? Back to the original 59K?


I have a skinny ass and can barely fit ND's seats. *
