Re: Attendance Issues for UCLA
Similar situation for San Diego St playing in that awful heat. If UCLA keeps winning they will come when playing good teams.
I watched that game on tv. I'm sure they did sell 27,000 tickets, but there were barely more than 10,000 in the stands. I've never seen the Rose Bows so empty for a football game.
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
