A Tale of Two Scoreboards

  • We saw a major difference in the game characteristics of the top data-heavy venues in pro vs. college football this past week. While the games played at our top data-heavy pro stadiums were full of excitement, their counterparts at the college level turned into snoozers by the fourth quarter.
    • The games played at the top five data-heavy pro venues were decided by an average margin of less than four points. While the other pro games played last week had an average margin of more than 14 points.
    • On the opposite end of the spectrum, the games played at the top five data-heavy college venues were decided by an average margin of more than 30 points. In addition, no game was within striking distance as each one was decided by at least 3 scores.

Caveats:

  • All figures include only data traffic seen on AT&T’s venue-specific mobile network.
  • All data metrics come from only venues with a DAS where AT&T’s mobile network is on-air and under contract. These metrics are not comprehensive of every game played during this past weekend for professional or college football.
  • This data is compiled from only football stadiums that had home games during this selected timeframe where AT&T is on-air on a DAS.
