FSU football is set to take on Michigan in the Orange Bowl on December 30 in Florida. We discuss if Michigan will have more fans than FSU at the game.
The Orange Bowl will take place at Doak South, a.k.a Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. It’s the rented home of the team FSU football has given that work to the last seven years.
It’s a place where typically there are more FSU fans in attendance than the home team. However, that may not be the case on December 30 when Michigan rolls into town.
The ‘Noles are considered the “home” team at this neutral site game. Normally, we wouldn’t call this a neutral site game, because it’s taking place in the state of Florida similar to how it was in the season opener in Orlando.
One would think that FSU would have the edge when it comes to fans in attendance since Michigan is so far away right?
That’s probably not going to be the case as Michigan sold out their allotment in two days.

It took two additional days for FSU football to do the same thing.

However, that’s not the most important thing when it comes to the number of fans each team is expected to have at the game.
If you goto Ticketmaster to purchase tickets, you can search to see what’s available. The visitor’s side (Michigan ) only has 15 sections with seats remaining.
The home side (FSU) has seats available in almost every section, although according to the key there are not many tickets remaining in those sections.
We’re two weeks away from the game, and Michigan fans have made a statement they’re going to be in the house that night.
FSU football fans better get these remaining tickets, or it’s possible Michigan fans start converting the home side into the visitor’s side.
