NOTES: ^These bowls reported the number of tickets sold rather than turnstile attendance. Tickets for the Aloha and Oahu Bowls, played in Aloha Stadium, were good for both games. The Orange Bowl was played this year in the Orange Bowl, capacity 72,319. It was played last year in Pro Player Stadium, capacity 72,000. This was the inaugural year for the Oahu Bowl and the Music City Bowl. The capacity of Sun Devil Stadium is 73,471, but roughly 3,000 temporary seats were added this year for the Fiesta Bowl. '97 attendance figures for Carquest Bowl (THE DAILY).
