Today there are 16 days remaining until kickoff.
16th was South Carolina's rank in average home attendance last season.
Carolina's Williams-Brice Stadium has an official capacity of 80,250. The largest crowd that has seen a game there was 85,000 for Clemson in 2001.
Last season USC average 79,131 fans for each home game. That number is slightly down from some yeras in which every game was sold out.
This is due in part to the economy and in part to the YES program. Before the YES program there was constantly talk of stadium expansion.
Once prices for tickets were brought up to be more even with other conference fores, the demand more closely matches the supply.
