NCAA Football 2019 Attendance, Week 11: Smallest Crowd of the Year





Week ten saw average attendance plummet move back up from 21,520 to 23,348 across all of Division I, the level where it had been for the few weeks prior to last week. But we also had two games under 1,000 fans. Let’s take a look at how everyone else fared, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 524 – Holy Cross vs Lafayette. Not many people were interested in heading out to Worcester to see the Crusaders face off against the Leopards. Those that didn’t show up made the right decision as Lafayette took the W home 23-20. An action shot for you:

Worst overall FBS attendance: 11,314 – Western Michigan vs Ball State.  Another week, another MAC team at the bottom. Who’s to say these weeknight games are worth it. The Broncos went 6-0 at home on the year and still only managed a hair more than 11,000 for the 35-31 win over Ball State.

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 34,244 – Oregon State vs Washington. I’m not sure what else there is to do in Corvallis, but only 70% of Reser Stadium was full to see a 19-7 loss to the Huskies on Friday Night. Multiple crowd shots:

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Holy Cross (2.2% full, 526 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: UTEP (29.4% full, 15,683 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: Arkansas (59.7% full, 42,985 in attendance)

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 11.

Enjoy!
