    College football attendance 12 years ago.

    I posted this on a Missouri forum and thought you all might be interested as well.


    It's interesting to see what people were averaging just 12 years ago.

    Check out the Big 12's attendance from 98.

    77,440 - Texas
    76,186 - Nebraska
    70,777 - Oklahoma
    58,293 - Texas A&M
    57,335 - Missouri
    46,503 - Colorado
    43,256 - Texas Tech
    42,220 - Kansas State
    41,656 - Oklahoma State
    35,181 - Iowa State
    33,697 - Baylor
    32,367 - Kansas

    I wish they had records like this that went back further then 1998. It would be interesting to see everyones attendance going back say 25 years ago. Still just since the 98 season there has been an noticeable increase in college football attendance.

    To compare here are last years Big 12 attendance numbers.

    101,175 - Texas
    85,888 - Nebraska
    84,778 - Oklahoma
    76,800 - Texas A&M
    64,120 - Missouri
    53,719 - Oklahoma State
    50,581 - Kansas
    50,249 - Texas Tech
    50,088 - Colorado
    46,763 - Kansas State
    46,242 - Iowa State
    36,306 - Baylor

    The difference in our attendance compared with Texas (the team with the highest attendance in 98) was 20,105 by 2009 that difference has grown to 37,055.

    Since I'm posting this here I'll add the difference for Iowa State. In 1998 Texas averaged 42,259 more per game then Iowa State by 2009 that difference has grown to 54,933.

    The difference between Texas and the team with the lowest attendance (Baylor in 09 and Kansas in 98) has grown from 45,073 to 64,889.

    Every team though has improved their attendance from 98 to 09.

    Increase in average attendance per school

    23,735 - Texas
    18,507 - Texas A&M
    18,214 - Kansas
    14,001 - Oklahoma
    12,103 - Oklahoma State
    11,061 - Iowa State
    9,702 - Nebraska
    6,993 - Texas Tech
    6,785 - Missouri
    4,543 - Kansas State
    3,585 - Colorado
    2,627 - Baylor

    Re: College football attendance 12 years ago.

    That's a really interesting post. I never expected to really post this, but it looks from that like the Big 12 has been good to its members, at least in the sense that all of us have seen growth.

    Something with this for athletic budgets (and maybe university budgets) would be interesting, although it would obviously have to deal with inflation somehow.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Solid post MF. I think we can all agree that ISU has the best fans in the B12.

    Interesting. Did any of those stadiums expand in that time? If so, by how many seats?

    That is what winning will do for you. FWIW, kansas has slipped over 3000 this year and are currently drawing 47,348 compared to 50,581 last year. i would expect their numbers to steadily drop

    I didn't mean for that to sound demanding. I just don't keep up with other teams stadiums because it depresses me. I was just curious if these were empty seats being filled or renovation creating more seats.

    I amnot sure but I think every team but Baylor(maybe they have) has had some renovations that increased seating.

    If this isn't justification for bowling in the south end zone, I don't know what is!
