2017 college football spring game attendance rankings: The updated top 10

Plenty of big schools are yet to have their spring games, but here are the early leaders.

With spring games comes the latent competition we’re all thrilled to follow: Whose reported attendance figure is the highest? The Buckeyes currently hold the top three all-time figures, cracking 100,000 in 2016, but who’s leading 2017?

So far, the Ohio State Buckeyes have the highest figure, with 80,134 fans packing into The Shoe on Saturday, April 15th. OSU fans were even seen scalping tickets before the game.

Clemson saw 60,000 at Memorial Stadium (according to the school) on an absolutely gorgeous April Saturday. The day had already started pretty well for the Clemson Tigers, with the commitment of the No. 2 player in the country, DE Xavier Thomas.

Here’s where we’re at, with two weekends of this still to go:

Attendance figures across spring games are pretty unreliable and oftentimes intentionally shrouded in mystery as to what the attendance number actually signifies. Is it tickets sold at the box office or the turnstile count? Is it just eyeballing? Either way, spring attendance figures vary across the country.

At this point, is still a heavy hitter or two left to go. Alabama usually packs its stadium to the gills for spring games, and you’d expect that to happen again.
