The Bulldogs announced an attendance total of 82,184 and it likely would’ve been higher but a section of the stadium was unable to hold fans as it is under construction. It is also the second most attended Georgia spring game in school history. The number falls just short of Nebraska for the most fans at a spring game, as 86,818 Cornhuskers showed up to watch Scott Frost’s first spring game. But Georgia fans can point out that Nebraska’s numbers fall short of Kirby Smart’s first spring game, which had over 93,000 people in attendance.
Other impressive spring game totals include Alabama and Tennessee. Alabama announced a spring game total of 74,432 while Tennessee announced a total of 65,098 fans to see Jeremy Pruitt’s first spring game. Mississippi State had a record 36, 789 fans for its spring game on Saturday afternoon.
Florida was the only other SEC school to top 50,000, as the Gators had 53,105 fans show up for Dan Mullen’s first spring game. Missouri and Ole Miss did not report spring game totals while Vanderbilt did not hold a spring game.
