T-Wolves finish in top 20 nationally in attendance
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - For the second consecutive season, CSU-Pueblo's football program was among the national leaders in attendance, finishing 16th in the nation in total attendance, the NCAA announced Monday.
The ThunderWolves' averaged 6,192 fans per game in 2009 over the team's six-game home schedule. The ThunderWolves' average fell from 2008's average of 7,853, which is in line with lower attendance figures reported across the NCAA and Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
CSU-Pueblo's per-game average was the highest in the RMAC by far, dwarfing the average attendance of second-place Nebraska-Kearney, which averaged 3,880 fans per game last season.
The ThunderWolves also enjoyed the honor of besting even Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) team, Northern Colorado, in average attendance. The Bears only drew 3,519 fans per game in 2009. The ThunderWolves only finished behind established BCS teams Colorado (50,088), Air Force (35,656) and Colorado State (25,643) among collegiate attendance leaders in the state of Colorado.
