September 10, 2016 between the University of Tennessee Volunteers and the Virginia Tech Hokies. It holds the record for NCAA football's largest single-game attendance at 156,990.

What does that have to do with the thread? That game was played at a NASCAR track.

Umm... that's exactly what happened. They built the deck in the previously open south end zone. Combined with the old layout of the stadium we went over 110k capacity.

Once they tore down both of the primary (east/west) stands and rebuilt, it was with a new seating arrangement that reduced the capacity of the stadium.

That's exactly what UK did, they put in all chair back seats, widened portals, larger concourses, more restrooms, concessions, etc. Many more fan amenities/comfort, new recruiting room/deck in the end zone. Yeah we lost 8k seats but UK can still do upper decks in both end zones to take capacity to around 80k, which is plenty when you consider most schools aren't filling the Stadium for every game, seems like today's fans want comfort and amenities like in most pro stadiums

re: Largest announced attendance home stadium
Apparently Auburn just announces a "capacity crowd" for sellouts at Jordan-Hare.

Official capacity is 87,451.
