Four HBCUs among top 10 in Division II football attendance

Like their counterparts at the FCS level, HBCUs may not have won any Division II playoff games this year, but they did draw well compared to the rest of their division. Nine HBCUs finished among the top 30 in D2 football attendance, according to NCAA figures.

Tuskegee was the head of the class, averaging over 9,960 fans per game, good for second in the country to Grand Valley State. The SIAC Champs were joined in the top 10 by Albany State, Winston-Salem State and Miles.

The SIAC also led all D2 football conferences in attendance, averaging 6,271 fans per contest. The CIAA was seventh with an average of 2,984.

Livingstone averaged the lowest turnout per game, drawing just 653 fans per game.
