Predict Thursday's attendance

University administration is counting on 40000 people at the OSU game while a post on this board says that, as of yesterday, only 8000 tickets were sold. How many people do you think will be at the game?

No way the game draws more than 25,000. I'm guessing a lot lower.

The question is how many Ok St. are going to travel for a Thursday night game, I bet they would have turn-out in bigger number if it was a weekend game - if they where playing Miami that is a different story altogether. To Ok St. FAU is still FAwhoo (did I just type that :-[) which could have an effect how many peopl they bring.

That 8k can be misleading - it does count the amount of tickets alocated to players ( for family & friends)
& I am not so sure they account for the away teams allocations either. Plus, there always seems to be a larger amount of walk-up sales at game time.

IMO, double the number, plus 2-3K should be about right.

They have been targeting large corporations for discounted group tickets packages, so hopefully some of them take advantage of the offers.

I think that anything more than 20,000 would be a nice turnout and a surprise. The fickel fans of South Florida won't turn out in numbers for this one and don't expect a great crowd from OSU. 18,000 is my guess. GO OWLS!!!
