ACC attendance is in (and up)

TAMPA, Fla. -- The attendance at the ACC title game for tickets sold and distributed was just announced at 57,227. Like I said before, still lots of empty seats, but a vast improvement over last year. Last year it was under 30,000. Consider this, though -- the attendance when both of these teams met during the regular season in Atlanta was 52,000. That's a good showing for both schools, considering we're in Tampa.
