Re: Attendance Issues for UCLA
UCLA isn't alone. Michigan has 3 home OOC games vs Colorado St, Hawaii and UConn.
Joke of a schedule
UCLA should have one premier OOC opponent every year. I know it was 100 degrees (so stadium must of felt 120), but if (insert even a middle tier P5 team) was there it wouldnt have been under 30k.
Right out of Big West basketball coaches playbook
Add to that a less than spectacular opponent and lack of recent winning and voila!
UCLA football set a program low for single-game attendance at the Rose Bowl, with just 27,143 fans purchasing a ticket for the Bruins’ opener against Bowling Green. The previous low came on November 7, 1992, when 32,513 fans were in attendance for a 26-14 win over Oregon State. CBS’ Jeyarajah adds some context, though, noting UCLA’s fall quarter doesn’t begin until September 19 and pointing out the temperature of over 100 degrees likely kept some fans away
