They attend all of the regular season games in the BIG 10 bc they know their postseason runs will be short lived.

They may have had the top three teams. But I guarantee you the SEC leads total attendance as a conference.

But yet it still didn’t help them when it matter the most. The CFP!!!

And Neyland's average attendance this year being about 20k more than Williams-Brice didn't help Tennessee this year. So what? Those teams have big stadiums and loyal fans. Why are you salty about a list?

Because they all have higher seating capacity than any SEC venue.

1. A&M (Kyle Field) - 102,733
2. Tennessee (Neyland) - 102,455
3. LSU (Tiger Stadium) - 102,321
4. Alabama (Bryant-Denny) - 101,821
5. Georgia (Sanford) - 92,746

Just curious...might this have anything to do with much milder weather in August/September? 95+ degree heat and southern humidity combined with a noon kickoff against Northwestern Arkansas State tends to lead to lower attendance IMO.

Number of factors, but weather can always attribute to it, stadium capacity as many have said, and what not. As far as I know, amongst those three teams, there was good weather for the majority of the season as well.

This is really interesting. I wonder how they are bucking the national trend toward smaller stadium crowds.
