NCAA Football 2017 Attendance, Week Five!


Time again to take a look at NCAA Football attendance for the last week.  Average attendance was down to 25,514 this week, with a lot of high attendance programs on the bye. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Worst overall Division 1 attendance week 5: 1,456- Charleston Southern vs Miss Valley State.  With the 0-2 Delta Devils in town, there was little to motivate the Charleston Southern fans to show up, coupled with the third smallest stadium hosting a game this week. The matchup played out as expected as Charleston Southern dominated Mississippi Valley State 58-7.

Worst overall FBS attendance week 5: 7,696 – UMass vs Ohio. While only just over 7,500 fans showed up to this one, they got to see a barnburner. Ohio sent the Minutemen faithful home disappointed after a back and forth game that ended 58-50 in the Bobcats favor.

Worst overall Power Five attendance week 5: 27,036 – Boston College vs Central Michigan. Massachusetts makes the list again with BC’s P5 lowest attendance of the week, with only 61% of Alumni Stadium filled up on a miserably rainy day in Chestnut Hill. Those who weathered the storm were rewarded with a 28-8 victory, but judging from the picture, the announced 27,036 seems a bit high:

 

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 5: Georgetown (7.1% full, 3,256 in attendance)

Bonus RFK empty seats shot:

 

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 5: UL-Monroe (34% full, 30,427 in attendance)

 

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 5: Pitt (49.5% full, 33,051 in attendance)

 

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 5.

 

Enjoy!
