Attendance might be boosted a tad bit because it's Homecoming.

Re: Attendance Poll

Well, there certainly weren't 16,344 at the last game, so I guess we're going with paid attendance, right?  Figure 12-15k, with maybe 10k butts in seats.

Re: Attendance Poll

The 8PM kickoff did kill attendance at MTSU game. This is 4PM so I think 20K announced with 15K actual butts in seats.

I don't understand this.  Seriously, I'm asking.  Why would (or does) an evening kickoff kill attendance?  I've heard this before, but I really don't get it.  True, 8PM is definitely late, and the only reason they did that, I'm sure, was for TV.  Why not 7PM?  Saturday night college football has great atmosphere.  I think it could be a thing.  It became a huge tradition in the '70s and '80s at FSU before they were a power – Seminole Saturday Night, they called it.  Well, at least until the TV money from afternoon games got too big to turn down, but we don't have that problem (yet).

My take on this is that many of the people at the 1st game were very "casual" Owl fans. The true diehards showed up for MTSU even with an 8PM kickoff.  For Arkansas State, alot of these casual fans are back for a 4:15 kickoff.  For now, many people don't want to spend their entire Saturday night at FAU stadium.  I do agree that once the fan base get stronger and we get more diehards, night games on Saturday will be rocking in this town.
