Since 2009, student attendance at college football games has dropped each year, sometimes dramatically in some stadiums. That is why Texas A&M is relishing the fact that their recent September 9th home game with Lamar drew a record NCAA student attendance mark for football of 38,800. The drop in student attendance has been attributed to many things, including higher ticket prices, more games on TV for students to stay home and watch and lack of technology in some stadiums, allowing less ability for social media, including texting and tweeting.
