NCAA Football 2018 Attendance, Week 4: Duke Only Fills Cameron


Week four of the NCAA Football season finally felt like things were in full swing, as no games were cancelled due to hurricanes, and plenty of conference play started up.  Average attendance was 28,193 for the week, a decrease of 1,374 over last week and the lowest attended week of the season thus far. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 840 – Valparaiso vs Truman State.  The Crusaders took on the Division II Bulldogs of Truman State, and that matchup wasn’t enough to stir a thousand folks out of their beds to head on down to Valpo’s campus.  Insult to injury? Truman State walked away with a 34-20 victory. An action shot that gives the impression of a lot fuller house:

Worst overall FBS attendance: 10,086 – UMass vs Charlotte. UMass splits their time on campus and at Gillette Stadium, and this week they were in Amherst.  A beautiful campus but not the best drawing opponent in the land, the hapless 49ers of Charlotte.  A mid-game shot for you:

UMass takes on Charlotte in Alumni Stadium.

 

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 25,132 – Duke vs North Carolina-Central. Duke rolled to a 4-0 start on the season with this 55-13 stomping of NC-Central, but they only managed to draw a shade over 25,000 on Saturday. With one of the better starts in team history, Blue Devils fans have to be asking themselves what it’ll take to fill up the stadium, because even the announced 25,132 seemed generous:

 

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Penn (8.4% full, 4,445 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Temple (35.1% full, 24,217 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: Virginia (53% full, 34,446 in attendance)

 

 

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 4.

 

Enjoy!
