Resident - We were thinking about going, but when I checked, the lowest price was $80 per ticket. Prices were set by NCAA. Students could get in for $20. $160 to sit in the rain was too much for us. Not everyone in Palo Alto has a huge entertainment budget.
I agree it looked bad on TV to see the low attendance. Blame it on the prices, weather, and the fact that the game was televised.
