Husker Fans Help Set NCAA Record on Sunday

By  | 

OMAHA, Neb. -- Fans packed TD Ameritrade Park on Sunday to watch the conference championship game, with 19,965 fans passing through the gates.

It set a NCAA record for a conference tournament game and was the second-largest crowd to watch a college baseball game in 2014.

The largest crowd of the season so far came on May 13 at Turner Field in Atlanta, when 21,310 fans attend a contest between Georgia and Georgia Tech.

Attendance for the five day tournament was 61,978, smashing the previous overall tournament record set in 2010 at Bill Davis Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, when 12,219 fans came for the entire event.

On Wednesday 10,424 fans came through the gates at TD Ameritrade Park to set a single-day attendance record, but that was just the beginning.

Another 11,759 fans came through the gates on Thursday night to break the tournament attendance record and more than 12,000 showed up for Nebraska's 9am game on Saturday morning.

Those numbers are in addition to other games played throughout the five days at TD Ameritrade Park.
