Does the Holiday Bowl garner a crowd of 50,000? It didn't seem that way to me when I lived there and they were a more highly ranked bowl. In any event, that's just one game involving teams not named San Diego state. If they were to expand to 50,000 that new stadium would seem very similar to Stanford's and have a similar capacity to Sun Devil Stadium. Martin Stadium (WSU) is 33,000 and Oregon State is not quite 46,000. The trend is toward smaller stadiums these days. Lots of fans prefer to watch on TV and avoid the crowds, expense, parking, bad weather, drunken fans, etc. Incidentally SDSU just finished another 10 win season. They've beaten ASU twice, Stanford once and UCLA once in the past 3 years.
