Beaver_Stadium_2013 [1]Through five weeks, announced attendance in Football Bowl Subdivision games is down 3 percent compared to this time in 2012 and almost 6 percent from this point in 2011.

The average attendance this season is 45,596, down from 47,181 through five weeks in 2012 and 48,279 at this time in 2011, according to an AL.com analysis. As ticket prices increase and nearly every game gets televised, many schools have faced decreasing crowds in recent years.

So far this season, 13 of the top 25 attendance leaders are down compared to the first five weeks of 2012. Three declined only less than 1 percent.
