We all knew coming in that the 2014 Final Four in Arlington, Texas inside AT&T Stadium would be a special event, and we also knew that there would be a legitimate chance that, with the size of the venue, there was a good chance that the all-time attendance record for a college basketball game would be broken.
Well, they did break that record…
Tonight’s attendance is 79,444, breaking the all-time Division I men’s basketball attendance record. Previous mark was 78,129. #FinalFour

This isn’t surprising at all, given the fact that this is such a large stadium, and the Final Four is one of the premiere sporting events of the entire year.
So far, the two games and the way they come across on the floor of AT&T Stadium has been nothing short of amazing and I’m sure that there will be a lot of people that would like to see the event play out in Dallas every year.
