Stacking up Big 12 spring game attendance

May, 10, 2012
The Sports Business Journal put together the spring game attendance numbers for every AQ conference (hey, we can only use that term for a couple more years), including the Big 12.

Texas led the way in the Big 12 with 46,000, the fourth-most in the nation. The Longhorns were behind only Ohio State, Alabama and Penn State.

Here's how the Big 12 ranked.
  • 1. Texas -- 46,000
  • 2. Oklahoma -- 20,509
  • 3. Kansas State -- 18,048
  • 4. Kansas -- 15,000
  • 5. Oklahoma State -- 11,000
  • 6. West Virginia -- 8,000
  • 7. Iowa State -- 5,000
  • 8. Texas Tech -- 3,000
  • 9. Baylor -- 2,750

TCU did not have a spring game open to the public.

Pretty thin numbers there at the end, though Baylor doesn't hold its game at its stadium. Traditionally, it does a carnival-type event at the practice facility on campus.

The most impressive number to me? Kansas' 15,000. That's pretty staggering, and equals the total at Texas A&M's spring game, too.

Nice showing from Kansas State, too.
