I know as a member of Bronco Nation, we are often attacked for not selling out our lovely home, many of us have defended the Nation against the attacks from the larger conference elitists that continue to persist that with our small stadium that a less than capacity crowd is inexcusable.
I know, I know, the students at times don't deliver the capacity crowd or the lackluster opponents in late November or early December can have it is toll on the crowd. That being said, I was looking through the NCAA Stats page and decided to look at attendance numbers. And I have linked some little ammo for your next spat about Bronco Nation home attendance, per the NCAA kept statistic regarding percentage of capacity, essentially total attendance divided by total capacity of Bronco Stadium for all six home games.
Congrats Bronco Nation, we were the #6 team on that list! We beat out the likes of Oklahoma, Florida, Ohio State, Michigan, LSU, Texas and many more. So we may not get a capacity crowd against LaTech on a Tuesday night or San Jose State on a snowy December day, but we are fulling Bronco Stadium beyond it's number of allotted seats every other time and we putting more people in the stadium over the course of the year than it's official capacity.
