Kind of an interesting read on Wisconsin football attendance, focusing on the number of no-shows each week based on an analysis of "announced attendance" vs. "tickets scanned".

The long and short of it - UW averaged 15K no shows in 2018.

But data released through another open records request showed that, even if they weren't there at kickoff, they used an average of 10,650 of the 13,233 student tickets sold in 2018, or 80.5 percent.

In the rest of the stadium, 79.6 percent of tickets were used (51,194 of 64,348 on average).

Over the 13 years of scanner data, students have used 87.7 percent of the tickets while the general public has used 83 percent.
Would be interesting to see how ISU stacked up.
