Here's the crowd for the NSU game. 24K is not bad for a game against an FCS school to open the season. Especially since a lot of Tech folks are waiting until game #2 against Miss State the following week to attend.

What does the Tech stadium hold, 28K? Got a picture of the student/visitor side? I was listening to the game and it sounded like NSU had a decent crowd there. You could clearly hear a very loud cheer when they made a good play.

Yes, it holds about 28K now. There were only about 700 NSU fans in attendance. You can see them on the bottom left corner of this attached pic. The NSU band is in the lower left dressed in white. This pic shows the visitors/LA Tech students side:

As I thought from the sound, NSU had a very good crowd there along with their band. Sometimes scheduling a local FCS is better than a FBS team. At least your fanbase knows them and the FCS school is no different than us FBS schools....

when we go to a P5 we bring a lot more fans than if we are playing say...Ball St. So to those NSU fans they are playing their "super bowl" just as the Tech fans would feel if Tech was playing LSU.

It makes a lot more sense playing a school a hour or so away than scheduling a FCS school 8 hours away.

Very impressed with UAB, so happy that the city got behind you guys. FAU , I expect a massive drop the next home game
Maybe, but just need to find a way to a get shot in there you are at the height of your program and you played an in state team and you has less than 20k.
We has 28k for a G-5 school and it shows the potential we have.

03-lmfao Cmon man, the draw of Navy around the country is better than some P5 schools. We have talked about this before on many threads. Hosting a service academy is much better than any G5, really no comparision.

How many were there for Navy 10k?

Not really, I was told it was considerably less than last time in Ruston, max of a 1,000.

I just told ya'll that the NSU crowd was estimated to be approximately 700. That's not great considering NSU is only about 80 miles from Ruston. I think they (the NSU fans) were expecting a real beatdown this time so they stayed home.

That band is at the very least 300 strong and I assume the section next to the band belongs to them also. It is the visitor section and going by this picture (I assume late in the game) they had fans all through that side

I don't have a clue on their numbers but I do know every good play they made it sounded VERY loud...especially for only 700

I could hear the Tech fans yelling in Manhatten KS, when Tech took KState to triple OT. Maybe 300 strong in 50k crowd. The home fans are silent when things aren't going it's way

NSU full band of energetic kids helped with the noise level also.
