UK Football had the biggest home attendance increase in the SEC

Here’s a surprising stat: Kentucky had the largest increase in home attendance in the SEC last season. According to Saturday Down South, the football Cats drew in over 2,800 more fans per game than they did in 2016, an increase of over five percent.

The most attended home game of the year? Florida, with almost 63,000 fans in the stands, followed by Tennessee and Missouri. I’d rather eat nails than relive the Florida game, so let’s look back on the win over Tennessee, a much happier time in Kroger Field:

    Man, that’s pretty bad. Considering the Louisville game had about 5-10,000 empty seats.

    How can leading conference in improved attendance be a “pretty bad” thing?

    1. My Dixie Wrecked

      If you’re selling out every game, there can’t be any improvement in attendance.

    Imagine how many people would come, if we weren’t so bad.

      Don’t say we, little troll.

      WE imagine if WE was good, but WE suck and go 6-6 every year.

      Really? Hmm. I thought we went 7 and 5? Who was I watching play all those games?

    4. BBNstrive49

      You’re right we went 7-5 we over achieved last year.

    Personally as a Kentucky football fan I think that football will never be our thing and we will always be below average at best. But it’s basketball season so let’s worry about our hoops! #BBN

    Who cares about that garbage statistic when we’re worried about basketball! BBN have you all thought ONE bit about something this insignificant during ball season? No shot.

    1. BradCalthegoat

      I agree. I think we need to focus on our basketball. We have never been any good at football so I just wish our fans would concentrate on our basketball season!

    Florida game had the most attendance with 63,000. Doesn’t Roger Field hold 67,000? No sellouts last year?
