Penn State Ranks Fourth In Spring Football Game Attendance
Penn State’s Blue-White game was the country’s fourth-highest-attended spring game this year.
An estimated 61,000 fans piled into Beaver Stadium last Saturday to watch the Blue team beat the White team 24-7 on a gorgeous day in Happy Valley.
Only Nebraska (85,946), Alabama (62,219), and Ohio State (61,102) had higher attendances. There’s still one weekend of spring games left to be played, but it’s unlikely that any of the schools playing — including Maryland, Georgia Tech, and Virginia — will reach attendances that even come close to 61,000.
The Nittany Lions drew 10,000 fewer fans than they did at last year’s Blue-White game, but it didn’t shift their position in the national rankings. In fact, this marks the third year in a row when Penn State ended up in fourth place.
Penn State now has some time to relax before training camp kicks off over the summer. The Nittany Lions will open their 2019 season at home against Idaho on August 31.
