NCAA Football 2019 Attendance, Week 2: Two in a Row in Pullman



Week two saw average attendance of 31,002 across all of Division I, a step down from the first week of the season as one would expect. The biggest home crowd to see a loss has been set at 98,763 as Texas came up short at home against LSU on Saturday. As for the rest of D1, let’s take a look, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 1,264 – Presbyterian vs Mercer. After this showing, I’m not sure many Blue Hose fans will be in attendance for future games. Down 42-0 at the end of the 3rd, the Bears stomped Presbyterian 45-7, and dozens sat through it:

Worst overall FBS attendance: 10,123 Ball State vs Fordham.  The MAC’s second straight week at the worst overall FBS attendance, could they have a full sweep of the season? Only 10,123 to see the 0-1 Cardinals host the Rams of Fordham. They were at least rewarded with a 57-29 victory. Here’s the action shot:

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 27,585 – Washington State vs Northern Colorado. Washington State’s second straight week in the spot, with a couple hundred more fans this week for the FCS opponent than last week. Needless to say ample passing led the Cougs to a 59-17 victory over the Bears.

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Drake (17.4% full, 14,557 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Rice (25.1% full, 17,567 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: UCLA (39.9% full, 36,951 in attendance)

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 2.

Enjoy!
