Guess attendance for Boston College
My guess is 18,000. Wish there would be more but doubt it. Friday night does not help at all.

13k, it's Labor Day weekend no students and many town people leave or will be at the High School game.

I think this is a pretty good guess, Ill go with 12,864

I think this is the first year we are going to start to realize the dent in season ticket sales from people not renewing just from not having any games October and beyond to go to.

16,500 I think you will get some casual college football fans show up just for the BC name.

Not sure how long high school games last, but we might get some late arrivals from the DeKalb high school game that starts at 7 a couple miles away. Or could just be potential fans NIU will lose that night.

Unfortunately, my thoughts exactly... I think we will be lucky to hit 13k. Hope I'm wrong

I'm gonna disagree. Ya it's Labor Day weekend, but it's a Friday night. Students still have classes on Friday and will likely stay til Saturday before they head home, especially the freshman. The weather will most likely be great. It's against an ACC team. I have friends who haven't attended a game in years who are going. One of them is flying in from NYC to catch the game with me. The buzz is there. I say 20,000.

Who are these college kids who want to go home on the weekend? Any weekend. My first two years I only went home for Christmas because they closed the dorms. As far as I'm concerned, you should never pass up any college weekend.

Great point--10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years later we all just wish we could have one more college weekend

19,500
