I've seen college baseball games with higher attendance than Stanford football.

LSU played in several just last year.

in 2023 Stanford football played in front of a whopping:
13,789 @ Hawaii
23,848 vs Sacramento St.
24,380 vs Washington
24,385 @ Washington State.



LSU Baseball played in front of:
15,012 in SEC tournament (more than the Stanford Hawii game)
25,010 in Omaha against Tennessee (more than any of those 4 Stanford games)
24,958 in Omaha against Wake (more than any of those 4 Stanford games)
24,878 in Omaha against Tennessee (more than any of those 4 Stanford games)
25,214 in Omaha against Wake (more than any of those 4 Stanford games)
25,258 in Game 1 vs Florida in Omaha
25,292 in Game 2 vs Florida in Omaha
24,878 in Game 3 vs Florida in Omaha


and none of those games are even in the top 10 CWS crowds.
LSU played in front of over 30K in Omaha back in 2008
played in front of 27,000+ against Tulane at the Superdome back in 2001-ish
Petco Park hosted some regular season college games about 15 years ago. One of them drew over 40,000.
Georgia played a game at the Braves stadium and brought in over 30,000 a few years back.
Last time LSU payed at Minute Maid there was over 27,000 people,

I can keep going if you'd like.

hell, 6 of the 10 teams in the Pac12 last year played at least one FOOTBALL game with smaller crowds than these.
And Arizona St was less than 1,000 people from making it 7 of 10.
