I thought it looked almost full early, except little areas beside the East side skyboxes, but then got empty up high partway through the 3rd. Heck, I can't blame them, I got tired of watching after 3 hours too, especially us giving up 3rd Down after 3rd Down all night.

Fastest 4 hours and 15 minutes I’ve ever spent.
A few students left after halftime homecoming announcements. Not everyone is enough of a FB fan to sit in the cold when there is a party waiting.

I ended up shedding clothes before it was over. 60k people generate a lot of BTU's.

It looked really good last night, and it was, but even in the picture you posted, you can see the dry spots up on either side of the press box.

It's that simple.

Selling all unsold tickets for $9.01 couldn't hurt.

meh, so they inflated the number in actual attendance by .5%. I think it's a safe bet to say it's never been that full, certainly not for a Tiger game.

Still pumped, GTG!

That's either pre-game or half-time activity too so...

This is the best I have. Teams are on the field. There are still pockets of people missing near the pillars at the top.

Sorry for the potato quality. The app won’t let me upload anything better.

Again, I'm in no way complaining or anything.

It's just what it is. We had a few very slight empty pockets.

Chairback sections are rarely, even on the best games, 80% full.

Complain about students all you want (which is typical, but predictable nonetheless), but some of our biggest donors are soft as hell at being in their seats, or at the games at all.

It filled in by kickoff. It was the most crowded I’ve been to since the 87 Ole Miss game. I was on the upper east and there were a few empty seats above the 85th row—but not many. The west side looked full. How was it where you were?

I was in 117 and the entire section was at least 98-99% full.

RE: 59,506
UCF was taking some pot shots at us on the conference board for selling the $9.01 tickets. I noticed the conference site showed UCF reported 41,000 and change for the Houston Game. I watched and I was shocked. If there were 20,000 there I will eat my hat.
