    Nebraska Game Attendance Prediction

    What is your prediction for the attendance on Saturday?

    The thing that may keep attendance down is the price of the tickets. Reserved seats are $90 and Hillside seats are $50 for both adult and youth tickets. There also appears to be no specials.

    Plenty of seats still available. Time to Fan-Up!!!

    I can't wait for Saturday! The 9-year old little boy in me says we can win. Go Cyclones!!!

    Re: Nebraska Game Attendance Prediction

    I just logged on and can get seats in Section N, row 15 still. Those are good seats. Initally was surprised all the permenant seating is not sold out, then realized this is par for the course anymore. I am sure by Saturday the Nebraska fans will gobble up all those tickets. Just sucks there are this many tickets left for such a huge game after back to back wins.

    I belive the Nebraska game was part of a three game mini pack that included KU, NU and MU. So there should be a good crowd on Saturday, I think they sold a good number of those packs.

    Being on TV will hurt too. I'll guess about 48,500, with another 10,000 in the parking lots watching who didn't buy tickets.

    Sorry, $90 is too much for a single game ticket for me. Does anyone have statistics on B12 ticket cost? I don't understand how people can afford to go to games at $90 a ticket. My wife and I make good money, we live about 6 hrs from ames, and I'd pay more to see ISU football than any other team/sport.

    I was able to make the Kansas game last Saturday (and I was in my seat 60+ min before kickoff). I thought $65 was too much for those tickets too. I thought that ticket price was an obvious reason why the stadium wasn't packed (and it wasn't).

    I don't have a solution, but this is the first time where ISU's athletic department budget issues have been glaringly obvious. I've been to Illinois and Indiana recently for games, and sorry guys, but Jack Trice doesn't compare. FWIW tickets for each of those games were ~$50 which I find much more reasonable.

    Edit: prediction on attendance: 46,000 and at least 10,000 will be NU fans.

    I'll say 53K, our fans will fork over the money to see if Coach Rhoads has enough magic in his bag-o-tricks to pull off a massive upset

    Re: Nebraska Game Attendance Prediction

    I was at the OKST-NEB game this year face value for nose bleed tickets were $100, luckily i was watching ISU take down the Longhorns and missed the 1st quarter so I got my ticket for 50.

    Re: Nebraska Game Attendance Prediction

    I believe Pollard has said that 48,000 tickets have been sold on a postgame interview last Saturday. My guess will be around 49,000.

    I agree that ticket prices will hold back a 50k+ crowd.

    We will have 50,000+. They will announce tickets sold not actual attendance.

    $50 tickets will not cut it for ISU in the Big 12

    Re: Nebraska Game Attendance Prediction

    Ive came up with a formula:

    47,000 at the KU game
    +8000 more NU fans than KU fans at the last game
    +1000 fans coming because it is a big game and/or because Iowa is away
    -3,000 fans who will just watch on TV
    -2,000 fans who will not come because its colder
    -75 fans who will not come because of Jeff Johnson

    = 50,925 fans.
