NCAA Football 2018 Attendance, Week 10: Sub-500 see FCS Football Game

Week ten gave us a great slate of football games, so it’s no surprise that overall attendance was up to 23,995, a gain of 855 fans per game last week. Despite this, we had a new low for the season with only 468 in attendance as a Division III squad hosted an FCS team. Let’s take a look at the full week, shall we?

 

Worst overall Division I attendance: 468 – SUNY-Maritime vs Hampton.  Division III SUNY-Maritime hosted the FCS Pirates with only 468 in attendance to an eventual 51-10 Hampton victory.  As one would expect, D3 schools don’t draw huge crowds, but LOOK AT THE VIEW FROM THIS STADIUM WHY AREN’T MORE PEOPLE WATCHING FOOTBALL GAMES THERE?

 

Worst overall FBS attendance: 10,338 – UMass vs Liberty.  As an independent, it’s hard to attract fans to see games against opponents in November, when most of your potential opponents are locked up with conference play.  So it’s no surprise that Liberty wasn’t the draw that UMass was hoping it was, but the game itself was a barnburner, with the Minutemen hanging on for a 62-59 win over Liberty.

 

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 15,543 – Kansas vs Iowa State.  Despite the fact that KU won last week, they continue to struggle to draw fans in, even with their most successful team in recent memory.  With only 15,000 in the stands (many of whom were in Cyclones gear, Iowa State had no problem calling audibles and running their offense without distraction, enabling them to roll to a 27-3 win over the Jayhawks.  An action shot:

 

 

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Cornell (4.1% full, 1,056 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Rice (26.3% full, 18,420 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: Kansas (31% full, 15,543 in attendance)

 

 

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 10.

Enjoy!
