Eyewitness News --

Sixty one thousand six hundred and forty seven fans. That's the number of fans that attended yesterday's 9/25 game.

The attendance hasn't been this low at a Florida State home game since 1992.

One student says maybe it's the weather. The high's for the past three games were 94, 93, and 94 degrees.

"It is really hot out. So maybe when it cools down they'll get a little more attendance," says Mark Dobies.

Even Jimbo Fisher took a few glances into the stands. He was quoted post game saying "I know these are tough times, economically, but we'll continue to play hard whether there's 83,000 fans or one."

And one of the fans we spoke to felt Saturdays win should be the remedy.

" I think after this win with Wake Forrest that attendance will go back up and people will want to come out and see us," says Keith McClellan.

Die hard fans say rain or shine, Seminole fans should stick by their team regardless.

"It's Tallahassee, it's the FSU Nation... They should definitely come out and see the team that's here," says Alana Easholm.

And with the three and one record the team thats out there has the potential for great things this year.
