    Second round games are typically lower turnout unless it is against a team with some name recognition with the fanbase.

    Sometimes late releases for returned visitor or student tickets have been difficult to resell on short notice. Student attendance has been trending down over the years making this issue worse.

    Semifinal games are always packed. Those are always the most fun games of the year. Night game with everyone dressed crazy for the holidays and amped up over a game they have championship tickets, hotel reservations, and airfare riding on.

    Not until folks started "getting tired of winning too much"....
    Texting someone "Did you get my text message?" is like asking someone "why do you hate me?"...I don't think you're ready for that answer.

    Student tickets didn't sell out and that section was empty. Typically they would sell those to non students at 40 a crack to regular fans but it didn't happen this year. But the game vs south dakota state sold every ticket. 2nd round games vs mediocre teams and 3rd round at 11 am vs a no name school at 11 am seem to drop a little. Comparatively, most FCS schools not Montana/JMU/JSU are only drawing 3-5k for playoff games.
