Ohio State Steals Spring Game Attendance Crown From Alabama

Here we have the closest thing to an actual college football competition since National Signing Day: the annual spring game attendance mark. Your winner is Urban Meyer's Ohio St. Buckeyes, who topped the Alabama Crimson Tide by a couple thousand.

The Buckeyes also hold the all-time record, crediting themselves with 95,722 in 2009. Bama's high is 92,183, from Nick Saban's first year.

It's a down-ish year for spring game attendance at many schools, as both of these programs have yielded bigger numbers in prior years. Still, after reading this, you can be assured Bama will do whatever it takes to bring out a full six digits next year.

This is extremely important, you guys. It's not final, of course, as Kansas, UMass and Rutgers are among those with chances to challenge for the title. Feeling good about UMass.
