    How do you think crowds will compare to this photo from the 2008 Insight Bowl?

    Similar. A few more people in the upperdeck.

    I don't anticipate Minnesota bringing many people.

    Thanks for the pic - what a beautiful setting.
    I think it'll be about the same. More ISU fans than either school last year, but less Minn. fans.

    From the photo, it appears as though KU outdrew Minnesota by a substantial amount.

    that's pretty sad looking. I really hope that we can have a better turnout then what they had then. There is nothing I hate more then watching a sporting event in a half empty stadium/arena. don't know why but it just doesn't feel right to me, always been that way. I would like to think we can put 20k+ ISU fans in the seats, although if Minny only shows up with 10k, that'll probably be a fairly accurate representation of what the stadium will look like this year.

    it looks like maybe 20,000 people, or maybe 30 are there. i think it will be similar, but i would guess that it would be filled more than that game. a lot of empty seats in that picture, but they must have anticipated that with the logos on the upper deck. as long as the snow keeps falling here, more seats will be filled there.

    It looks like the attendance for the game last year was reported at 49,103. The few years before that 45,000-48,000. I would expect something in that range but I believe sun devil stadium holds 73,000 so it will seem a like the crowd will look a little sparse.

    Re: Minnesota Insight Bowl Photo.. Crowd Size

    Is this the same venue where the 2002 National Championship game was played between Ohio State and Miami?

    Yes, I'm almost sure of that.

    The 2003 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl took place on January 3, 2003 in Tempe, Arizona at Sun Devil Stadium, with the Ohio State Buckeyes (of Ohio State University) defeating the Miami Hurricanes (of University of Miami) by a score of 31–24 in double overtime.

    yeah, but no scoreboard (the list of brews available that got erased as the beer emptied).
