Top 10 Colleges With The Largest Football Crowd


College football season is almost coming to an end and it's time to get on with those statistics. CBS Sports reported that attendance for college football has decreased for six straight years already although that is not evident with all the crowds cheering for their home team. Here are the Top 10 colleges with the largest football crowd.

The top spot belongs to Michigan with a total of 110,468 in attendance this year. Although the attendance this year has a one percent decrease compared to last year, the stadium capacity was still filled up to 103 percent.

The second and third spot go to Ohio State and Texas A&M. Ohio state had an average attendance of 107,278 while Texas A&M had 101,917 this 2016. There's also a decline in attendance for both but crowd turnout is still good with 104 percent for Ohio and 99 percent for Texas.

In fourth place is Alabama with a total of 101,821 in attendance and stadium capacity was filled to 100 percent. Alabama is followed by the Louisiana State University with an average attendance of 101,231. Although there was more than 8 percent decline in attendance compared to last year, the LSU stadium was filled up to 99 percent of its capacity.

Occupying the sixth and seventh places are Tennessee and Penn State. Tennessee has a record 100,969 in attendance despite the 1 percent decline in attendance this year. Penn State, on the other hand, has an average 100,257 in attendance and had its stadium capacity filled up to 99 percent.

In the eighth and ninth spots are Texas and Georgia. Texas had an average 97,881 recorded attendance this year while Georgia had 92,746 average attendance. It is also interesting to note that Georgia's attendance in 2015 is the same as this year's.
