ATTENDANCE DOWN, BUT NOT DIRE: In Orlando, Matt Murschel reported despite the overall drop in attendance for the 35 total bowls, 18 games "saw an increase in overall attendance and 14 bowl games saw more than 50,000 fans in attendance." Football Bowl Association Exec Dir Wright Waters said, "If you compare bowl game attendance to other sports, including regular season college football, the stats this year measure up to what we are seeing across the country. There are lots of factors that affect attendance whether it is the state of the economy, weather or the match-ups ... many things bowls have control over, and many they don't" (ORLANDOSENTINEL.com, 1/10).
