What looked like an average week of football produced one of the most- exciting games in SEC regular-season history.
Georgia hosted a sellout crowd as Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs and Jacob Eason of the Bulldogs threw bullets back and forth in the Vols’ shocking 34-31 win at Sanford Stadium. The win ensures that the Volunteers are in the driver’s seat for the SEC East crown, with tiebreaker edges over Georgia and Florida.
Alabama and Ole Miss also hosted sellouts as the Crimson Tide took care of Kentucky and the Rebels got revenge against Memphis.
Here are a couple other attendance notes:
- Six of the eight games involving SEC teams on Saturday featured 95 percent or better capacity.
- Auburn failed to sell out for the third time this season. The Tigers came into the year with a 16-game sellout streak, dating back to 2013.
- The smallest crowd Arkansas has played in front of this season witnessed the Razorbacks’ demolition of Alcorn State on Saturday. Attendance was smaller than Arkansas’ game at TCU, which features a seating capacity of just 45,000 (Standing room ticket sales pushed that figure to 49,000.).
- In its near upset of Florida, Vanderbilt attracted its largest home crowd of the season. The Commodores rank last with 30,165 fans per home game.
