Attendance Truth: Rashaad Penny runs wild edition

Fog: Mother Nature’s tarp.

With the Chargers gone and Mission Valley up for grabs, it seems everybody is suddenly *keenly* interested in San Diego State’s football attendance. Trouble is, that number has always been kind of tough to pin down. The official count is a tickets-distributed figure, and that often doesn’t jibe with the butts in seats. THE HATERZ on the other hand have it on good authority that literally zero people have ever attended an Aztecs football game. We’re here to find the truth, people.

What would constitute a good crowd for Saturday’s game?

Through two home games this season, the San Diego State football team is averaging more than 44,000 fans per game (you SDSU attendance deniers can view the sexy butts-in-seats evidence here and here). That’s really good — the type of average attendance that would not be out of place among Power Five conference schools in areas that have professional teams, culture and indoor plumbing.

Of course, those two games were also the hottest tickets on the SDSU schedule: The annual KGB SkyShow and Stanford, the best Power Five school to play at SDSU in more than a decade. As the Aztecs now sit undefeated at No. 19 in the nation, but with a less than glamorous opponent coming in, this weekend will provide a truer test of what kind of college football town San Diego can really be.

Aztecs look like the Aztecs, beat UNLV

For one night at least, we can breathe easier. In a 26-7 victory over UNLV on Saturday night at Qualcomm, the Aztecs signaled that whatever ailed them over the previous six-plus quarters of garbage football wasn’t necessarily a permanent state. Or, at the very least, it wasn’t so bad that it would prevent them from drilling MWC West patsies with ease.
