NCAA Football 2019 Attendance, Week 4: FSU Fans Fed Up


Week three saw average attendance drop from 28,896 to 24,173 across all of Division I, another step down from the first three weeks of the season as one would expect. It’s worth noting that D2 Truman State hosted Valparaiso last week, and managed not only to outdraw ten other FCS games, but absolutely stomped the Crusaders 38-7 sending the fans home happy. Meanwhile, disappointment in Pensacola is clear as Florida State had the lowest percentage of capacity attendance of any Power Five school. Let’s take a look at how everyone else fared, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 1,330 – Stetson vs Western New England. The Hatters hosted the D3 Golden Bears and only a handful decided to show up for the 59-28 stomping of the lower-level team, but the attendance seems pretty good when you see the crowd shots, which look decently full:

Worst overall FBS attendance: 8,557 Massachusetts vs Coastal Carolina.  Independent UMass occasionally played games at Gillette Stadium in their first few years before returning full-time to Amherst. Even with being closer to home, they couldn’t draw 10,000 to see the Chanticleers in town, in a game that Coastal Carolina dominated, 62-28.

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 24,079 – Wake Forest vs Elon. The second straight week for the Deacs, again on the back of the smallest stadium in the P5. Despite being 74% full, BB&T Field was again the home of the lowest attended P5 matchup of the week, this time against FCS Elon

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Yale (9.3% full, 5,684 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: UTEP (19.3% full, 10,493 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: Florida State (58.5% full, 46,530 in attendance)

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

Enjoy!
