NCAA Football 2019 Attendance, Week 7: SEC! SEC!



Week seven saw average attendance drop from 24,777 to 23,922 across all of Division I, even with with LSU and A&M hosting more than 100,000 folks, with a much better result in Death Valley than at Kyle Field for the home fans. With that, the SEC took both the top and bottom of attendance for Power Five conferences, as you’ll see below. Let’s take a look at how everyone else fared, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 1,268 – Bryant vs Long Island. Bryant frequently is at the bottom of attendance in both basketball and football, and this week is just another to add to their long list of credentials in poor attendance. Not a great crowd approaching kickoff:

Worst overall FBS attendance: 10,365 – Florida Atlantic vs Middle Tennessee.  Lane Kiffin seemingly having trouble attracting fans in to see the team play the Blue Raiders. With only 10,365 in attendance for Saturday’s 28-14 win, FAU improved to 2-0 in conference and 4-2 overall. An interesting shot of a PAT block returned for 2:

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 20,048 – Vanderbilt vs UNLV. A rough season for the ‘Dores having lost to such powerhouses as Purdue, but this week made it even worse. A 34-10 loss to UNLV with a basketball-sized crowd in attendance, and even the wrapup article couldn’t hide the crowd:

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Penn (11.4% full, 6,033 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: UTSA (24.2% full, 15,728 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: Vanderbilt (48.4% full, 20,048 in attendance)

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 7.

Enjoy!
