Michigan football claims 2016 attendance title

The Michigan football program fell short of its goal of reaching the College Football Playoff, but there was plenty of excitement along the way and the nation was captivated by Jim Harbaugh and the Wolverines.

If you needed any further evidence of that, Jon Solomon of CBS Sports provided the data.

During the 2016 college football season, Michigan led the FBS in average home attendance. The Wolverines averaged 110,468 fans every Saturday at The Big House, nearly 3,000 more than No. 2 Ohio State.

The two Big Ten rivals averaged well above the rest of the field, with Texas A&M coming in third with an average of 101,917.

The top ten programs in average attendance can be seen below:

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
1. Michigan 110468
2. Ohio State 107278
3. Texas A&M 101917
4. Alabama 101821

6. Tennessee 100968
7. Penn State 100257
8. Texas 97881

At least Michigan can claim one title in 2016.
