UConn football’s average announced attendance dipped below 20,000 for the first time since Rentschler Field opened in 2003. The school sold or gave away 109,296 total tickets for six Huskies home games, for an average of 18,216 per contest — a 13 percent decline from 2018. Announced attendance peaked at 23,108 for a Week 2 game against Illinois and fell as low as 12,084 for the season finale against East Carolina. Despite the decline in tickets distributed, the average number of fans actually attending UConn games this season (as measured in tickets scanned at the gates) increased slightly year over year, from 10,032 to 10,286.  – Alex Putterman, Hartford Courant, Read More
