    Number of ISU fans at bowl game?

    I wasn't there, so does anybody know about how many ISU fans were there? Estimates leading up to the game were anywhere from 11,000-20,000.

    I am thinking this is about right....Flag Guy was able to sneak across and snap a pic of our 1/2 of the stadium and the lower deck was full,the upper deck was 1/2 to 3/4 full....while their side had a ton of Cyclones as well

    Hopefully he will post the pic soon

    Re: Number of ISU fans at bowl game?

    The Iowa State contingent was tremendous. I would estimate 20-22,000 total. It was obvious many thousands of them (like me) bought them from the Insight/Fiesta people directly.
    I would estimate the total butts in seats was around 40,000.

    Re: Number of ISU fans at bowl game?

    Considering 45k were there, I would think at a minimum 70% ISU, so 30,000+

    There was also a fair amount of locals at the game roaming around.

    Re: Number of ISU fans at bowl game?

    Yea, I'd say about 20,000. Wish I knew the exact # though.

    Not quite....

    I would say a strong 15,000 ISU fans were there. I would also be shocked if there was actually more than 35000 people actually in the stadium. Quite a few impartial locals were there.

    Re: Number of ISU fans at bowl game?

    So by your calculations, Cyclones made up a third of the attendance. Not from where I was sitting...

    Iowa State fans had to be in the 25-30000 range from what I saw. Gopher fans numbered 3000 if they were lucky.

    Re: Number of ISU fans at bowl game?

    30k is a bit much i would say. There were many tickets that were giving to locals who really didnt care which team won. It was a great showing no doubt but i think 30k is a stretch

    17,826 ISU fans.
    At least thats what I counted... And I only counted the people in ISU gear, so take it for what its worth.
