Texas Tech Third in Big 12 in Average Attendance

The Red Raider faithful continue to support Texas Tech football.

CollegeFootballNews has the five year averages for attendance and Texas Tech ranks 30th overall and that’s good for third in the Big 12 over the past 5 years.

College 5 Year Average Big 12 National
Texas 96,375 1 8
Oklahoma 85,468 2 13
Texas Tech 57,732 3 30
Oklahoma State 56,310 4 33
West Virginia 55,584 5 34
Iowa State 55,233 6 37
Kansas State 52,253 7 38
TCU 45,259 8 50
Baylor 45,170 9 51
Kansas 33,280 10 68

If you ever wanted to know why Texas Tech is most likely safe in terms of realignment, this is it. They do put people in seats and there’s a large alumni base. Despite not seeing great football for a few years, people support Texas Tech. I also wonder what capacity is for each of the programs below Texas Tech, I would have thought that Oklahoma State and West Virginia both have capacity higher attendance. Boone Pickens Stadium has a capacity of 60,000 (although I’m not sure if this is 100% accurate, it may be 56,790) and Milan Puskar Stadium has a capacity of 60,000, while the official capacity for Jones AT&T Stadium is 60,454.
