As more time passes, it seems more and more likely that the upcoming college football season will be played in the fall. What it will look like, however, no one can really say at this time.

If the season goes on as planned, how will schools handle fans in the stands?

That’s an interesting topic that doesn’t have any answers at this time but if social distancing is required, a new report from Madison Blevins of WBIR in Knoxville does an outstanding job of showing what that could look like this fall for Tennessee fans.

Thanks to the coronavirus, we have all become well aware that social distancing guidelines require six feet of distance from one another while out in public.

If two fans are allowed to sit next to each other, Neyland Stadium could hold around 18,400 fans.

Here’s what that could look like:

If three fans are allowed to sit next to each other, Neyland Stadium could hold around 35,800 fans.

It’s an interesting possibility to ponder but it has to be noted that we are a long way away from this reality in the fall. There’s still plenty of time before the season opener arrives on Saturday, Sept. 5 when Tennessee is scheduled to run out of the T and on the field for the matchup against Charlotte.
