Clemson ranked in Top 10 for 2017 spring game attendance

The Clemson Football team won their first National Championship since 1981 and consequently had a school-record 60,000 energetic fans flock to Death Valley to watch their Tigers go through an intra-squad scrimmage to prepare for the upcoming season. The afternoon was also another celebratory moment as several of the members of the football team received their National Championship rings including Deshaun Watson, Mike Williams, Ben Boulware, and other teammates.

However, how did that fandom stack up with the rest of attendance throughout college football this spring? According to Gridiron.com, Clemson was ranked No. 6 in the country with regards to attendance at different spring games behind only Ohio State, Nebraska, Alabama, Penn State, and Georgia.

In case you wanted to compare Clemson's attendance ranking to in-state rival South Carolina, the Gamecocks were ranked No. 26 overall with 12,345 fans at William-Brice Stadium.

The Top 20 schools with the highest figures were:

1. Ohio State: 80,134
2. Nebraska: 78,312
3. Alabama: 74,326
4. Penn State: 71,000
