  • 1995 NCAA FOOTBALL ATTENDANCE SECOND BEST EVER

         Total attendance figures for the '95 NCAA football season
    were the second best in history.  The grand total for all 565
    NCAA teams was 35,637,784, a drop of 822,112 from last year's
    record setting total of 36,459,896.  Div I-A programs accounted
    for 72% of the '95 totals.  Bad weather on several weekends was
    cited for the dropoff, especially in divisions below I-A,
    according to the NCAA.  Individually, Michigan won its 22nd
    consecutive attendance title with an average of 103,767 per game
    (Richard Campbell, NCAA NEWS, 1/8 issue).  Div 1-A conference
