NCAA Football 2019 Attendance, Week 3: Packed Houses




Week three saw average attendance drop from 31,002 to 28,896 across all of Division I, another step down from the first week of the season as one would expect, but on a percentage basis, there were very few empty stadiums. But let’s take a look, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 1,362 – Bryant vs Fordham. Bryant athletics aren’t doing so great, often appearing at the bottom of our weekly basketball attendance charts. The Bulldogs made their first appearance this athletic year, but in a twist it’s in football! A rainy, dreary day left the stands quite open:

Worst overall FBS attendance: 10,123 New Mexico State vs San Diego State.  The MAC’s perfect season is destroyed by independent New Mexico State, who drew the exact same this week as Ball State did last week. The Aggies Here’s the action shot:

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 31,345 – Wake Forest vs UNC. This one is almost unfair, because BB&T Field was 96.5% full, but it just so happens to be the smallest Power Five stadium around, so they’ll naturally tend to be at the bottom of the list. What’s even more interesting about this game is that it was a scheduled out of conference game, despite both teams being in the ACC. With the win, Wake is still 0-0 in ACC play, technically. Neat! A shot of the actually full stadium:

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Wofford (26.6% full, 3,463 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: South Alabama (30.4% full, 12,373 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: Cal (56.5% full, 35,268 in attendance)

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 3.

Enjoy!
