Clemson, SC – Clemson averaged over 80,000 fans for its 2001 home football games, Ticket Manager Van Hilderbrand announced Wednesday. It marked just the second time in history that Clemson exceeded the 80,000 per game mark.
Clemson had a total paid attendance of 480,911 for its six home games in 2001, an average of 80,152 per game. The NCAA is compiling its rankings this week and should announce the national attendance rankings before Christmas. Clemson averaged 78,378 last year and ranked 15th in the nation on a per game basis.
Clemson had three crowds of at least 80,000 last year, including two that ranked in the top five in school history. A total of 85,036 attended the Florida State game and that figure now ranks fourth best in Clemson history. It is followed by the 84,869 who attended the North Carolina game on October 20th.
Clemson sold 57,506 season tickets this year, second highest figure in school history. The per game average of 80,152 is exceeded only the average of 81,750 for the 1988 season, a year in which Clemson played both South Carolina and Florida State at home.
Clemson has now had four of the top five single game attendance figures and three of the top seven single season averages under current head coach Tommy Bowden.
