College Football's Top 25 Most Crowded Stadiums

Athlon ranked the Power 5 stadiums based on percent of capacity.

Attendance is a function of many things.

 

Renovations, scheduling, prices, realignment and weather can impact attendance numbers. Even how a school reports its given numbers can vary from program to program (unfortunately).

 

Most notably, however, is the quality of the team. The easiest solution to "fixing" dropping attendance numbers is to win more games.

 

In 2014, Texas A&M (+21 percent), Maryland (+14), LSU (+11), Mississippi State (+10), Rutgers (+9), UCLA (+9) and Florida State (+9) led the Power 5 teams in attendance growth for different reasons.

 

The SEC schools saw boosts from renovations while the two Big Ten teams each saw a spike from joining a new league. The Bruins' attendance grew simply because the team was expected to be and was really good.

 

Ranking the Stadiums: ACC | Big Ten | Big 12 | Pac-12 | SEC

 

So Athlon Sports looked back at all 65 Power 5 teams and ranked them by average capacity based on the reported numbers. How packed was your favorite team’s stadium?
