Stacking up Big 12 spring game attendance

5/10/2012

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.
