Since I recently finished up compiling the complete history of the Spring Game as far as the results go, I've now moved on to the attendance totals which I noticed along the way researching of them being reported.
Now I'm going back, year-by-year and trying to find the attendance for each game.
So far I've found every year's attendance save two going back to 1975. Then there's a large gap between attendance being reported prior to 1975.
Here's what I've got so far-
|Date||Attendance||Result||Prev. Season Record|
|1991||Cancelled (Poor field conditions)|
|1996||Cancelled (Poor field conditions)|
|4/13/2002||25,000||No Score Kept||8-4|
|2003||Cancelled (Poor field conditions)|
|4/10/2004||18,000||No Score Kept||10-3|
|4/16/2005||10,000||No Score Kept||9-3|
|4/17/2006||15,000||No Score Kept||7-5|
|4/12/2008||2,500*||No Score Kept||9-4|
|4/11/2009||50,000||No Score Kept||3-9|
|4/13/2013||18,000||No Score Kept||8-5|
|4/5/2014||15,000||No Score Kept||7-6|
