Boise St @ Toledo was something like $49 per ticket.

Rockets drew almost 30,000 for the Friday night game with the premium ticket prices. More importantly it was the most viewed ESPN FB game ever originating from a MAC stadium. Certainly not Orange Bowl type numbers, but 2.7 million viewers is not bad. Have to mention that the NIU-FSU Bowl had improved viewership and attendance over the last few OB's, inspite of some OB Committee member complaints about the match-up.

This is confirmation right here. Big attendance, big viewership, big revenue, and big recognition for your program. Hopefully, our next AD will understand what is painfully obvious to most of us.

I think that is better than almost all of the MACCs.
