The games mean that much more when November hits, especially in the SEC. As expected, fans are showing out.
Tiger Stadium was packed to the brim, as LSU faced off against Alabama in one of the most anticipated games of the college football season. However, Baton Rouge was far from the only place to show out.
Four different games sold out this weekend, including the first sellout of the year for Kentucky. Other stadiums approached season highs.
Here are a couple other attendance notes:
- This was the second-highest attended week in the SEC this season, behind only Week 2. Because of non-conference, that week featured 12 games, including the biggest game ever at Bristol Motor Speedway.
- Even though every SEC team was in action this week, every game hit at least 92 percent capacity and each stadium boasted at least 58,000 fans.
- The 62,507 fans at Commonwealth Stadium was by far the biggest Kentucky home crowd of the season.
- This was the first time this season that Neyland Stadium had fewer than 100,000 fans in attendance.
