The entire population of Clemson, S.C., could fit inside Clemson University's Memorial Stadium. In fact, every single one of the city's 16,058 residents could also bring four friends from out of town and there would still be 1,210 empty seats.
Clemson is one of 22 FBS programs whose football stadium has a larger seating capacity than the city (or other census-designation place) the institution resides in. Their 407.5 percent seating-capacity-to-city-population ratio is not, however, the largest difference in college football.
That honor belongs to Notre Dame, which — contrary to popular belief — is located in Notre Dame, Ind., not South Bend. The census-designation place has a population of 6,021, or less than eight percent of the capacity of Notre Dame Stadium (80,795). The stadium is 1,241.9 percent larger than the city, which is nearly triple that of the next closest university, Army (461.9 percent), which — like Notre Dame — is located within a very small census-designation place, West Point, N.Y. (population of 6,763).
