CUSA Attendance Look Week 12

RowdyTalk has a thread dedicated to Attendance. I was curious about the conference games only so I took a quick look at the numbers without pesky non-confenference games skewing the numbers somewhat.

First, here are their numbers for the top 8:

RT Att Tracker

Team Attendance Conf Rank
East Carolina 43,985 1
UTSA 29,747 2
UTEP 28,375 3
Marshall 25,004 4
Southern Miss 22,906 5
La Tech 21,715 6
Rice 21,449 7
North Texas 21,369 8

Here are the top 8 just in conference play along with capacity and percentage filled:

Conference Play

Att School Capacity %
42,304 ECU 50000 84.61%
26,742 UTEP 51500 51.93%
25,090 UTSA 65000 38.60%
23,852 Marshall 38019 62.74%
22,280 UNT 30850 72.22%
21,965 SMISS 36000 61.01%
19,324 LATECh 30600 63.15%
16,447 Rice 47000 34.99%

What is noticeable is that we do the second best job among these schools at filling out the stadium relative to the capacity, and that we were the only school to make a jump in attendance in conference play. That just means that Ball State can’t draw anyone (14K+ in that game).
