    Pretty impressive. Jeez OSU and Purdue put up some terrible attendance numbers.

    We'll need to subtract the exact amount of players on the ISU roster. They didn't show up.

    Multiply each player by .75 since they only showed up for one quarter.

    I'd say there was 42-45 thousand there in seats at the most

    Well Tulsa was allotted 10k seats. So you might be right. That number includes allotments


    My teams: (as of 9/20/13)
    Cleveland Browns: 0-2 - .000
    Cleveland Indians: 83-70 - .542
    Cleveland Cavs: 24-58 - .293

    That's strange because when they announced the number during the game, I am almost positive that number was 54,000 plus change.

    shenanigans. If the stadium holds 62,000, and there were 25,000 on the ISU side, I was in the ISU donor section and there were a minimum of 50 empty seats within spitting distance of me. The total in seats was no more than 35,000. Very impressive job out of ISU fans, but Tulsa and the locals watched it on TV

    I agree. I figured there was 35 - 40k actually in attendance.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: 53,687 - Attendence of Liberty Bowl

    88% of capacity.

    Other games that reached that or above

    Bowl (Winner and Loser) Attendance Capacity % of Capacity
    Maaco Bowl Las Vegas (BSU and UW) 33217 36800 90.26%
    Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl (Rice and Air Force) 40754 45000 90.56%
    Valero Alamo Bowl (Texas and Oregon St) 65277 65000 100.43
    Hyundai Sun Bowl (GTech and USC) 47922 51500 93.05
    AutoZone Liberty Bowl (Tulsa and ISU) 53687 61008 88.00
    Chick-fil-A Bowl (Clemson and LSU) 68027 71228 95.51
    Capital One Bowl (Georgia and Nebraska) 59712 65438 91.25
    Rose Bowl (Stanford and Wisconsin) 93359 91136 102.44
    Discover Orange Bowl (FSU and NIU) 72073 75540 95.41
    Tostitos Fiesta Bowl (Oregon and KState) 70242 63400 110.79
    AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic (A&M and OU) 87025 80000 108.78

    How many national title teams are included in that list

    Washington (2). Texas (4). USC (11). LSU (3). Georgia Tech (3). Clemson (1). Georgia (4). Nebraska (5). Stanford (1). Wisconsin (1). Florida State (2). Texas A&M (3). Oklahoma (7).

    I count 47 national titles.

    Schools with BCS game(s) but no title:

    Boise State (2), Oregon (5), Oregon St (1), KState (2), NIU (1)

    Total 11

    Remaining: Rice, Air Force, Tulsa and ISU

    Considering that the Armed Services Bowl has a capacity less than the attendance for the Liberty bowl I say wow.

    But ISU was on the side with more seats - the stadium is bigger/deeper on one side.

    I guessed that actual attendance was about 45k (stadium ~75% full overall). I did some math in another thread and guessed 25-30k ISU fans, 10-12k Tulsa fans and maybe 5-10k miscellaneous.

    I was impressed Tulsa had that many fans there, given it is maybe twice as big as Loras College in DBQ.

    Liberty Bowl isn't a bad bowl. As for losing to a cusa team that wasn't the fans fault. The fans did what they needed to and we should be proud of ourselves. Our fans have gotten us to bowl games we didn't belong in, Liberty bowl included.

    ISU fans have stepped up the support and opened the checkbooks, as so many fans and administrators have been pining for. It's time for us to start seeing results on the field. Gaining 9 first downs against a CUSA opponent is not what most of us had in mind.

    What bowl game did the fans get isu in? We haven't been to a good bowl game. Ever.
