As a whole, the Southeastern Conference is also dominating attendance statistics. An SEC team has led the NCAA in total and average attendance for the past 15 seasons–as well as 20 of the last 26 years.

Average Attendance

The top five spots on the national average attendance rankings are held by SEC teams: LSU, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Mississippi State and South Carolina, respectively.

There are ten SEC teams in the nation’s top-25 for average attendance:
