NCAA Football 2019 Attendance, Week 6: Over Capacity




Week six saw average attendance drop from 25,909 to 24,777 across all of Division I, helped by a couple of games that were over 150% of stadium capacity in the Northeast. Don’t tell the fire marshall! Let’s take a look at how everyone else fared, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 1,328 – Arkansas-Pine Bluff vs Lane. Homecoming in Pine Bluff might not have gone as hoped, with only 1,328 fans showing up to see the Golden Lions barely edge out the Lane Dragons of D2. So few people were there, there isn’t even a shot of the crowd, sad!

Worst overall FBS attendance: 10,365 – Northern Illinois vs Ball State.  The NIU Athletic Department are big fans of AMSTS and love to be the lowest attended team in FBS as they’ve often been, and we are very much looking forward to the angry tweets about how they count different than other schools, or that there was rain in the forecast (which there was). Either way, the Huskies only had a hair over ten thousand to see Ball State put them away 27-20. Here’s a compilation of action shots:

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 22,610 – Duke vs Pittsburgh. Despite some recent success, Duke football still isn’t the draw that their basketball program is, and their evening kickoff only managed a little more than 22,500 fans on Saturday. Unfortunately for them, they were sent home disappointed as the Panthers took the W 33-30. Your action shot, with plenty of fans dressed as blue seats:

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Arkansas-Pine Bluff (8.3% full, 1,328 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Northern Illinois (22.5% full, 10,365 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: UCLA (52.4% full, 48,532 in attendance)

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 6.

Enjoy!
