Once again, the state of Alabama is revved up for another showcase season in the SEC. The state of Alabama has won the last four national championships, and fans came out in full force for both Auburn and Alabama on Saturday.
The Tigers paced the SEC with 83,401 people proudly ushering in the Gus Malzahn era, and then nearly every single person headed over to Toomer’s Corner for the final rolling. The optimism is a welcomed site for the Auburn athletic department.
And how about Kentucky having over 50,000 people attend the Blue and White Game? Mark Stoops has the Wildcats’ fan base charged and ready to pursue a bowl game in just his first year.
Florida held “an open practice” with a controlled scrimmage, and numbers were estimated around 10,000. Obviously, the format hurt attendance numbers drastically. Last year the Gators had more than 38,000.
