Surveying Big 12 spring game attendance

We're still about two weeks away from Kansas and Kansas State's spring games, but we've had plenty across the Big 12 already. Here's a look at which teams had big crowds come through the turnstiles for their spring games.

Nobody from the Big 12 will be taking home the title of college football's most packed spring game, but there were still a few good crowds.

Texas: Officials announced 45,000, but as someone who was in attendance, that number was much more like 30,000. After fewer than 50 people stuck around for "Toy Story 3" on the big screen after the game, I'm guessing that tradition will end after just one year.

Oklahoma: The Sooners announced a crowd of 25,598 heading into a heavily anticipated season. Fortunately for both the Sooners and Cowboys, the Oklahoma City Thunder's opening-round playoff game was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, rather than Saturday, in competition with both games.

Texas A&M: The Aggies had a crowd of 16,500 on a gorgeous, warm day in College Station.

Oklahoma State: It was a beautiful day in Oklahoma, and 16,000 fans showed in Stillwater.

Texas Tech: The Red Raiders had hoped for more but the 12,400 fans were quite a few more than the announced "several thousand" at a cold, rainy spring game last year.

Missouri: It was a bit chilly up North, but the Tigers had 10,000 fans witness the next chapter in their quarterback competition.

Iowa State: Like at Missouri, chilly temperatures didn't help the crowd, but 4,000 came to Jack Trice Stadium to see the Cyclones.

Baylor: Rather than play the game at its off-campus stadium, Baylor decided once again to play the game as part of a day-long festival at the practice fields. The 3,550 fans wouldn't look like much in a stadium, but surrounding the practice fields, a reporter friend of mine told me it was a pretty good atmosphere and looked packed, versus the alternative.
