Close it down now. Nobody will have a higher spring game attendance than Ohio State this year. The Buckeyes, fresh off a national championship in January, welcomed 99,391 fans to Ohio Stadium to watch the annual spring game in Columbus.
That easily puts Ohio State on top of the spring game attendance numbers this year, and nobody will have a chance to catch them.

Nebraska entered the weekend as the leader in spring game attendance with 76,881 fans attending last weekend’s spring game in Lincoln. Until the numbers from some other games come in today, the Big Ten is currently holding the top three spots in the spring game attendance numbers. Michigan’s 60,000 was second most in the nation coming into the weekend.
The Big Ten could have another top five spring game attendance figure coming in later today with Penn State’s spring game getting started later this afternoon.
