Even though our capacity has fallen below Penn State during the renovations, through last week's games, we still have the largest average attendance in the NCAA.
If for some reason, this does not work, here is the top 5 and the other Big Ten teams making the list:
1. Michigan 108,649
2. Penn State 106,955
3. Ohio State 105,229
4. Texas 100,283
5. Tennessee 99,091
15. Wisconsin 80,037
17. Michigan State 74,903
SEC may claim to be the top conference, but a lot more fans come out to see the Big Ten play. I believe Tennesee has a capacity of over 100,000, but apparently isn't selling out games. For as mediocre as our team has been this year, the fans still come out and support. Go Blue. Can't wait for a bigger Big House next year and a better team. This chart won't be even close.
By the way, what are the chances of a story like this making the local media anytime soon. Oh, I forgot, it is a positive story. Sorry.
