From the World-Herald,
Official attendance at the Wisconsin game was 86,068, a difference of 39,455 from the number of scanned tickets. NU claimed an attendance of 86,284 at the Minnesota game, a difference of 28,554.NU’s scanned ticket numbers for the kickoff against the Badgers registered at 46,613 — 8,225 fewer than the previous low of 54,838 for the frigid 2018 Illinois game. The 2022 Minnesota game — at 57,730 — became the third game to have fewer than 60,000 scanned tickets since the World-Herald started charting the totals.
This is why it's hard to take the sellout streak seriously. Media, players, coaches, etc., are not attendees, they are participants. Roughly 45% of people claimed as attendees [at the Wisconsin geam] didn't have to buy a ticket!They differ significantly from official attendance figures — routinely in the upper 80,000s — in part because scanned ticket data doesn’t include media, players, coaches, support staff, concession workers and others who might be included in the announced attendance.
