Michigan led college football in average attendance for the third straight season

Michigan led college football in average attendance for the third straight season, the NCAA announced Tuesday. The Wolverines filled the Big House to the tune of 669,534 total attendees over six games and averaged 111,589 fans per game in Ann Arbor.

Michigan had one fewer home game than many other teams because of its neutral-site season opener against Florida, so the Wolverines didn’t take home the total attendance crown. That went to Ohio State, who had 752,464 total fans and ranked No. 2 in average attendance with 107,495.

Michigan’s average attendance actually improved, up to 111,589 from 110,468 in 2016 and 110,168 in 2015.
