South Bend is a small town, and not many grads live in the area. My friend lives in Kenosha, WI, but is well off enough to travel to every game, home and away. I think a lot of their season ticket holders are subway alumni from the Chicago area, and had no problem selling tickets for $1200 ea.
50k UGA fans was in ND stadium
35-38k was at Vanderbilt but it was holiday weekend in Nashville
MAYBE 25 will go to UT, the checker idea has fizzled and isn’t happening but it did cause more Vol fans commit to go to the game.
