Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher promises to break Ohio State’s spring game attendance record

Some people just may not get the big deal.

Ohio State fans, however, do.

The Buckeyes’ annual spring game is quite the event at. No, it’s not a real game. But regardless, Ohio Stadium gets more packed than any other school for the game every single season.

This past year, leading into the 2017 campaign, Ohio State drew a crowd of 80,134 — setting the all-time record in spring game attendance. Going forward, Jimbo Fisher wants to change that.

Fisher, who has been the leader at Florida State for the past eight seasons, signed a 10-year, $75 million contract this offseason to become the new coach at Texas A&M. Now, he wants the Aggies to be the new leader in spring game attendance.

For what it’s worth, the Aggies had 21,000 fans come out for its game in 2017.
