The official Division I FBS attendance team rankings for 2014 were released this week as reported on Thursday by CBSSports.com.

College Football saw on average 1,002 fewer fans that attended home games last season and also fewer went to bowl games to cheer on their favorite teams in 2014 (-4,617).

The high cost of season tickets for a family, outrageously high concession costs, predatory gauging of hotel rooms on weekends and the convenience of watching your favorite team on huge high definition TV's are a few contributing factors that have lowered the urge for casual fans to go support their favorite team every weekend.

Clemson was ranked #15 overall in average fan attendance in the nation with 81,752. Those numbers are quite impressive considering Death Valley's reported stadium capacity is 81,500 which is a fill percentage of 1.003. In 2013, Clemson's attendance was 80,176.

The Tigers were second in the ACC behind only Florida State's 82,211 attendance numbers. The only other team from the ACC in the Top 30 was Virginia Tech.

The ACC had 4,727,318 total attendance which is an average of 50,291 which was a +309 gain from last year's numbers.
