Default Announced Bowl Attendance Figures

This is what the bowls have reported in attendance, according to the BOX SCORES. No way Gator Bowl had better actual attendance than the Capital One Bowl, so obviously there is some major discrepancies in how the bowls come up with announced attendance:

Rose Bowl Stanford Michigan State 95,173

Chick Fil A (Atlanta GA) Duke Texas A&M 67,946
Alamo Bowl (San Antonio) Texas Oregon 65,918
Fiesta Bowl UCF Baylor 65,172
Gator Bowl(Jacksonville) Nebraska Georgia 60,712

Liberty Bowl(Memphis) Rice Mississippi State 57,846
Capital One Bowl (Orlando) Wisconsin South Carolina 56,629
New Orleans Bowl Tulane Louisiana Lafayette 54,728
Buffalo Wild Wings(Arizona) Michigan K State 53,284
Holiday Bowl(san Diego) Arizona State Texas Tech 52,930
Music City (Nashville) Ole Miss Georgia Tech 52,125
Outback Bowl (Tamp Bay) Iowa LSU 51,296
Russell Athletic(Orlando FL) Miami Louisville 51,098

Sun Bowl (El Paso TX) Virginia Tech UCLA 47,912
Pinstripe(New York) Rutgers Notre Dame 47,122
Belk Bowl(Charlotte, NC) Cincinnati North Carolina 45,211
Las Vegas Bowl Fresno State USC 42,178

I went to the Cap One three years ago but did not attend myself this year. For those of you who were in attendance, what ratio do you think there was of South Carolina to Wisconsin fans? I estimated 2 to 1 when we played Nebraska three years ago, was it similar this year?

I was just wondering what kind of facilities were available at the Cap 1. I know lots of people like to bash Williams Brice ie. restrooms, concessions, etc. Do they sell beer at bowl games?

Definitely more sc fans. Stadium was honestly better than I expected. However I see why they want to re do it.

And yes, they sold beer

$10 a pop, but they were 25oz cans...

Yeah, we were in 307 (about the 25 yard line on the Carolina side)... The Wisconsin side Upper Deck was probably 10-15% full, and our Upper Deck was probably at least 50-60% full..

If I had to make an educated guess, we had at least 20,000- 22,0000 Carolina fans there, and they had maybe 8,000-10,000.

I'd say it was 60-65% Carolina fans. It was hard to tell from our section though. Their upper deck did look almost empty.

Most of the Carolina fans yesterday participated in a "Capitol One Card stunt" It was a wavy American flag during the national anthem.

They had $10 big beers and a full liquor bar.

LOL you were too quick! I got this from a blogger bragging about Texas HS athletics. No way I was taking the time to type out all those numbers! Just had to delete out his HS reference.

Not sure if all bowls count the same way, but that "Announced Attendance" for the Gator Bowl is for tickets distributed, not actual fannies in seats. This would be the sum of tickets sold and tickets distributed through sponsorship agreements.

I'm pretty surprised at all the empty seats at the games so far. Tells me people would rather sit at home and watch the game in high def, catch all the replays and other games. This should be a concern for not just the bowls, but college football teams in general since I think this is becoming a trend. Might be time schools looked at ticket prices, refreshment prices, etc.

Yeah during the broadcast one of the announcers said something like "This sold out Georgia Dome is rocking right now..." and I thought there must be a ton of scalpers eating tickets since literally whole sections in the upper deck were empty.

Also they mentioned on SportsCenter this morning that PLAYOFF games in Green Bay and Indianapolis were in danger of being blacked out in the local markets this weekend bc so many tickets remained unsold. I could not believe it! Green Bay having trouble filling Lambeau?

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.
