    Will TCU-BSU bring enough fans?

    Last time they brought 34,628 to the stadium in Poinsettia Bowl. BSU only has 19K students and TCU only has 9K. It doesn't seem like to me that this BCS matchup will fil the stadium. They might make our crowd look way better.

    Boise State brought 60,000 to Phoenix last time they were there.

    TCU has a pretty widespread fan base with alot of money. I think they could bring some good numbers.

    Ole Miss's enrollment is only 14,900 (LINK), which is less than Boise St's enrollment - yet they don't seem to have problems getting fans to show up for games.

    60k to Phoenix or 60k to the game? I think the stadium holds about 70-80k and I have a hard time believing OU fans were outnumbered by that much.

    And TCU's home game against Utah, their marquee home game of the year, drew over 50,000. Lots of TCU fans in the Dallas-FW area who don't/didn't go to school there, so I don't know how relevent their enrollment is.
    I agree, I bet the stadium is packed.

    Don't all the BCS games get sold out (or really close) no matter who is playing?

    Re: Will TCU-BSU bring enough fans?

    All other BCS games still have tickets at this point but will likely sell out.
