Every week after a home football game, The Crimson White will provide a report on student attendance at the game. All numbers were provided by The University of Alabama via an open records request.
On Saturday, 15,355 people sat in the student section of Bryant-Denny Stadium for the Crimson Tide’s home season opener against Colorado State. According to information from The Crimson White’s article “High Tide, Low Turnout,” this was the highest attendance since 2008, when the University started using ACT Cards for football tickets and the earliest that data was made available.
