Shula Bowl XVI Attendance
owlsdad saidLet's face it - given the last few years, the crowds this year (minus Navy), and the typical "so much else to do" excuse means that even 20k is really good for FAU. I mentioned it, but is there data about the all-time largest crowds in the stadium? I thought I recalled Navy was like the 3rd biggest in history, but just wondering how many times we have ever gone over 20k? I honestly haven't bought a media guide/game program, but don't know if they put that kind of thing in there (I know other schools do).Posted On: Nov 17th 2017, 1:01 PM
First game in the stadium against WKY was a virtual sellout as was the Miami game then 3rd was the Navy game. Attendance numbers drop from there with maybe a few games around the 20K mark announced. I believe this could be the 4th highest attendance in the stadium…pretty sad but when you 3-9 every almost year what do you expect.
I just hope the team and coaches come through for a big crowd for the 1st time - I think they will!!!!
GO OWLS! Really wish we could be down there again - Marshall game was fun - rain storm and stupid finish and all!
FAU quarterback understudy Jason Driskel spelled an injured Quez Johnson to give the Owls a fighting chance before falling to the Hurricanes 44-20 in front of a record crowd of 30,321 at Howard Schnellenberger Field at FAU Stadium at the home opener on Sept. 11.

owlsdad saidI heard the "announced" crowd at over 24k - it was a Shula Bowl record for tickets sold. But I'm thinking 16k at most in the stadium.Posted On: Nov 19th 2017, 1:59 AM
Felt like there was a couple thousands hanging in the Concourse inside the hyndaui deck the whole game
At the end of the 1st I would say definitely over 15k butts in seats, deck was mobbed but that’s another discussion.
