Does anyone have guesses on the attendance for the home opener on Saturday. I am going to say around a said crowd of 12,000 actual attendance probably half that maybe even after the win and early kickoff.

I am going to say 19500.  1st game, pent up demand, win over USF, BOGO promotion, all night tailgate.  Yeah, I know it's a reach, but it could happen.  Just keep the weather forecast good.

Well Pat Chun and Coach Pelini visited several Frats and Sororites yesterday to get them pumped up for the game. There were several tweets showing Coach P visiting them and getting them to throw up Owl fingers. This, plus the BOGO, shows that they are very aware we need butts in the seats.

Good stuff and we need that (and more) types of involvement to increase attendance. Smart too doing it after a win to help build momentum.

GO Owls.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Announced attendance (tickets sold) will be around 16,000.  Butts in the seats, 7-9K.

With the win and the promotions I am going with 18K announced sold and 12K+ in the stands.


GO OWLS!

Not sure about attendance, but I dont feel good about this game.

Our line is 17...if the other team scores more than 17 points = FAU loss.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.
