NCAA Football Attendance, 2017 Week 11: SEC Highs and Lows


Time again for your week in review on NCAA Division I Football attendance.  Average attendance was up to 24,713 this week, around average on the season. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance week 11: 1,191 – Robert Morris vs Bryant. For the second straight week, the Bryant Bulldogs appear on the lowest attended list, though this time it’s on the road at Robert Morris.  Only 1,191 showed up in Pittsburgh to see the Colonials get stomped by Bryant 42-17.

Worst overall FBS attendance week 11: 6,603 – Northern Illinois vs Ball State. With only 6,600 fans in attendance, Northern Illinois set the gold standard in the MAC this week, the conference that has been at the bottom of the list for three straight weeks now.  The crowd was thin despite the fact that the Huskies have an opportunity to play in the MAC Championship game, sitting tied for first in the MAC West with a 5-1 conference record.

Worst overall Power Five attendance week 11: 27,346 – Vanderbilt vs Kentucky. There were a lot of headlining SEC matchups this week: Georgia vs Auburn, Alabama vs Mississippi State. This, clearly, was not one of them.  Only 27,345 showed up to see UK stomp the Commodores 44-21 and boy does that seem generous:

 

 

 

 

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 11: Tennessee State (12.8% full, 8,693 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 11: Northern Illinois (14.4% full, 6,603 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity, week 11: Baylor (43.1% full, 34,482 in attendance)

 

And since it’s unique, here’s a gratuitous shot of Fenway Park in football configuration, having hosted UMass and Brown this past weekend:

 

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 11.

 

Enjoy!
