In our last post, we examined overall attendance for NCAA football. This time around we take a look at individual team attendance. Unsurprisingly the best teams with the largest numbers of alumni have the best attendance rates. Alabama leads in total attendance for the past five years (4,225,443), which is to be expected given that they have been competing for a playoff spot every year recently. Ohio State is second with 4,003.658, while Tennessee’s attendance seems to have outperformed its ranking at 3,845,002. Penn State (3,805,806) and Michigan (3,727,339) round out the top five.
Thanksgiving Break is upon us once again which means college students will soon be flocking home to eat all the food in their parent’s houses and sleep in until the early afternoon. Your freedom diminishes before their eyes as you are stuck doing chores and being criticized by family members you only see twice a year.
The house is full of cousins, grandparents, and nosy aunts that are all trying to get in your business. All you want is to watch the football game in peace. With FanWide, you can get away from your family and watch the game with other fans.
Last weekend, No. 16 Washington State University defeated No. 5 USC 30-27 at home in Pullman, Washington. Naturally, the crazed Coug fans rushed the field.
