A tepid home schedule that included the likes of the Florida A&M Rattlers did little to deter Buckeye fans from making the hajj to Columbus and checking out their team.

The Buckeyes averaged 104,933 fans a game for a grand total of 734,528 over the seven-game slate. Michigan, unable to beat Ohio State at home, took home the home attendance crown.

But when attendance shifted to all games — home, away and neutral — Michigan fell to No. 3. Auburn, which reached the national title game, took home that crown. Ohio State held down the No. 2 spot with 1,191,436 total fans watching the Buckeyes play live.
