NCAA Football Attendance: 2017 Season, Week 3!


Hey, it’s time to take a look at NCAA Football attendance for the last week.  The good news? Division I averaged 29,810 in attendance last week. The bad news? We lead off with an FCS team playing at an NAIA field, so you know there will be good stuff. We’re talking sub-1,000 fans in attendance. Woo.  Let’s take a look, shall we?

Worst overall Division 1 attendance week 3: 300- Trinity International vs Valparaiso on Saturday. Valpo traveled to Deerfield, IL to face the NAIA Trojans of Trinity International, whose field is famous in the turf circles, apparently.  It’s unknown why the Crusaders took to the road

Worst overall FBS attendance week 3: 11,546 – Buffalo vs Colgate. Only 11,546 showed up to see the 0-2 Bulls take on the Colgate Raiders, which made the UB Stadium look pretty sad:

But those brave souls were sent home happy, as the Bulls won the ballgame 33-10.

 

Worst overall Power Five attendance week 3: 26,714 – Duke vs Baylor. Once again the Blue Devils top the bottom of the list for attendance in the Power Five with a dreadful showing against Baylor. This is despite the fact that Duke is 3-0 on the season, the stands still look like this:

 

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 3: Penn (5.7% full, 3,009 in attendance)

 

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 3: Temple (33.2% full, 22,911 in attendance)

 

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 3: Duke (46.5% full, 26,714 in attendance)

 

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for both week 3.

 

Enjoy!
