Wow, did anyone watch Purdue at Penn State on BTN? (Currently ongoing). I've never seen an emptier stadium for a men's B10 contest. There are entire sections in the lower bowl that are completely empty. I'd estimate a third of the lower bowl is in attendance. Pretty embarrassing. Seriously, State College, get out there and support your basketball team, they're having a great year.
This is Michigan's lead over Penn State in overall attendance for the 2008 season. Penn State's largest home crowd attendance has been 110,017 for the Michigan game, so it's possible that Penn State might nudge past Michigan, but otherwise, Michigan, despite the smaller stadium capacity this season, will hold on to the attendance title for another year. So we can perhaps at least win something this season.
By the way, the Northwestern game was only the third smallest crowd of the season, Toledo and Miami both drew smaller crowds, Michigan State was the largest crowd of 110,146.
