Announced crowds for Hogs scrutinized

FAYETTEVILLE -- Announced attendance was more than double the number of tickets actually used for the final three Razorback home football games last year, based on records released by the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

Both UA and Arkansas State University keep game-by-game records on tickets scanned, or used, which differ from what an Arkansas State spokesman described as an announced attendance derived based on "industry standards."

Schools playing at college football's highest level routinely announce thousands more people as attending games than those who have a ticket code scanned for entry into campus stadiums, The Wall Street Journal reported this week.
