Oklahoma-Auburn Draws Lowest Attended Sugar Bowl Since 1939

Monday night’s Sugar Bowl was a clash between two national powers in one of the coolest cities in America coming out of a holiday weekend. And there was hardly anyone there to witness it.

Auburn and Oklahoma drew a crowd of 54,077 at the Superdome for a 35-19 Sooners win on Monday night.

According to a report from Sports Business Daily, that’s the smallest Sugar Bowl crowd since 1939, “when TCU-Carnegie Mellon drew 44,308 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans.” (SEC Country)
