ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell recently released a list of college football's biggest home attendance increases in 2014.
Leading the Big Ten and coming in at No. 8 is Maryland. The Terrapins, in their inaugural Big Ten season, saw an increase of 5,703 fans per game, going from 41,278 in 2013 to 46,981 in 2014.
The next Big Ten school to appear on the list is Penn State (No. 12), which broke the 100,000 fan plateau (101,623) in Year 1 under James Franklin, good enough for an increase of 5,036 fans.
Rutgers is the third and final Big Ten team to make the top 15 list. The Scarlet Knights saw their attendance jump by an average of 4,083 fans, going from 46,549 to 50,632 in their first Big Ten campaign.
Texas A&M ranks first on the list, averaging nearly 18,000 more fans in 2014.
