NCAA Football 2019 Attendance, Week 13: Lowest FBS and FCS Attendance of the Year



Week 13 saw average attendance stay flat at 22,542 from 22,203 across all of Division I, the level where it had been for the few weeks prior to last week. This week we had three games under 1,000 fans, including one barely above 500. Let’s take a look at how everyone else fared, shall we?

Worst overall Division I attendance: 527 – Delaware State vs St. Francis (PA). After drawing only 827 the previous week, Delaware State upped the ante and kicked 300 folks out, or perhaps they just lost their interest. The Hornets lots this one by a score of 35-21 to go to 2-8. Your second half kickoff action shot:

Worst overall FBS attendance: 5,062 – Northern Illinois vs Eastern Michigan.  Another week, another MAC team at the bottom. This time, it was the lowest attended FBS game of the year with only a hair over 5,000 in attendance on Tuesday Night. The Huskies proceeded to then get stomped by the Eagles, 45-17, and not a whole lot made it to the end:

Worst overall Power Five attendance: 19,863 – Vanderbilt vs East Tennessee State. A tradition unlike any other, the SEC playing FCS schools in November. Except when you’re Vanderbilt, that won’t help the draw as Vanderbilt Stadium was less than 50% full for the 38-0 whoopin’ of the Buccaneers. Your action shot:

Emptiest FCS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Norfolk State (4.8% full, 1,453 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS stadium as a percentage of capacity: Northern Illinois (11% full, 5,062 in attendance)

Emptiest FBS Power Five stadium as a percentage of capacity: Rutgers (47% full, 24,641 in attendance)

And now, for your browsing pleasure, every game and the corresponding attendance for week 13.

Enjoy!
