ACC Football Attendance Analysis (Shakin The Southland)
Clemson led the ACC in attendance last season, averaging 77,469 fans per game during the seven game home schedule.  FSU was second in attendance with a 71,270 and VTech averaged over 66,000 per game.  No other ACC school averaged over 60K per game.
