Abstract
Overall attendance at bowl games has steadily decreased since 2010, meaning that institutions are often left with tickets they cannot sell. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the drivers of spectator attendance at college football bowl games through four competing econometric models. The full random-effects model included 41 explanatory variables, and was examined using both OLS and interval regression. A competing fixed-effects model is also presented. Finally, practical and theoretical implications are discussed.
