Yes, Duke gave tickets to its students for free, so there were many unused tickets in addition to the normal unused tickets seen at most bowl games. That upper deck looked half empty.

The Gator and Outback looked like they were at about 50 to 60% of the attendance of the Cap 1 Bowl.

I was in 209 (45/50 yard line gamecock side) and the Wisconsin upper decks looked mostly empty. Their lower deck wasn't as bad.. Good amount of them over there,

Lots of gamecocks around us. Few WIS people but they weren't bad at all. One couple told us congrats and had great things to say about shaw and spurrier.

There is no way the gator bowl had 60,000. It looked like a normal jag game attendance .

Really tells the tape on both the true state of the economy and the HD TV technology making home viewing such a perfectly good alternative. Lots of folks prefer to stay home, plain and simple.
My friend, it is COLD up here, even by midwestern standards, right now. Expected high this coming Tuesday in Chicago is -2 (it's a balmy 7 degrees as I type this), and Green Bay's quite a ways north from us.

A lot of people can not travel halfway across the country to attend a bowl game for various reasons.

Well Indy has a dome so what's their excuse?

With how much the NFL has grown in popularity, I find it shocking that 3 of 4 games this weekend are in danger of being blacked out locally. That's crazy!

FWIW, Panthers have already sold out their first home game of the playoffs. No blackout in Charlotte!

I heard 58k for Cap One, and if I had to guess from the layout on TV and using that number it looked like 38k "ish" USC fans to 20k WISC

Not only that but ticket price too. A bowl game with 50,000 people paying $80 to sit in a seat is still more impressive than 55,000 people paying $30 to sit in a seat.

Living in Charlotte, I can tell you the ACC Championship game is extremely easy to score free tickets to every year unless Clemson or Va Tech is in it. The SEC Championship on the other hand you are lucky to get in for less than $100. So even if attendance was similar numbers the SECCG is by far more impressive.

I have a feeling for the Gator Bowl that of the fans in attendance many people got in for absolutely free and it still looked like crappy attendance. I know others have echoed similar sentiments about Duke giving away tickets so that the Chik-Fil-A was better attended than it would have been. So many moving parts to these raw numbers it's almost impossible to compare apples-to-apples.
