    The Buffs have won 7 games in a row, and they just beat CSU in their house.
    Attendance at the Keg has not been over 8,000 in the first five games.
    The game is at 6pm on a Saturday night and Tad has challenged the fans to sell out Coors.
    Capacity is 11,064.
    My guess: 10,320

    Colorado's pretty strong on LDS membership, and my perception is that BYU fans travel well. There should be some excitement in Buffland, and past years' Saturday night games have done surprisingly well. I'll say Boyle's prediction comes true: sellout with a large contingent being Cougar fans.

    Is BYU a "premium game" cost-structure wise?

    Just looked on the website to pick-up a cheap extra ticket thinking it'd be a good game to help convince a neighbor to get on the bandwagon. But I noticed even the cheapest seat-back seats are $60 + service charge. That surprised me. Earlier, when people referencing increased ticket prices being an attendance factor, I wasn't putting too much credence in as my season tickets still seem cheap as well. (Probably the best entertainment value purchase I make all year).

    But if walk-up/single game tix are really all the $60+ range, that really seems a bit steep IMHO. I can see how that'd impact attendance.... esp vs. lower tier opponents and/or games around busy times.

    Then again, if BYU is a premium/hi-demand game and they can pull in some extra bread, then by all means, makes sense to me. But otherwise, that is a little pricey.

    The interesting part here is the students. It's the day before finals (yes CU has Sunday finals now), I think that hurts the numbers.

    Now I know that all CU sports passes are counted in football attendance, but I'm not sure how it works for basketball. Student turnout may or may not actually influence the total paid attendance.

    Sellouts at Coors are always true sellouts and not inflated "sellouts" with the exact arena capacity like CSU or the Nuggets/Avs. So would you like to give me a crooked number or are you gonna predict 11,064 even?

    For those of you predicting low numbers, I only count about 550 dots left on the map. Not sure how many GA seats are left.

    Want 2 free tix? Sadly, I'm missing the biggest non-con home game of the year, but for the low-low price of the transfer fee, I got you.

    Not really, I just spend it counting dots on seat maps apparently. It took about 10 minutes.

    CU is offering half off a ticket to the Oregon State or Washington State games if you buy a reserved ticket to BYU. Really pushing that sellout.
