How has Thursday affected us traditionally? They are great for national exposure, and they give me an excuse to take Friday off, so all good for me, but I know there will be some people who can’t make it because they work out of town and work on Fridays, plus non-season ticket holders may not be as willing to buy tickets if they can’t “make a day of it” like a Saturday game.
I am sure if we are undefeated it will not make a massive difference, probably none when Louisville comes around - if we are still undefeated, every seat will be sold, people selling them last minute online will sell them, and sell them for a lot, but I think you may be optimistic for UConn, on Thursday, for a game not expected to be competitive (Assuming we beat OU and UConn looks like they did last year).
I think Lamar will pull 35.5K, UConn just under 34K attended, but with ~800 more sold than attended the largest unused sold tickets of the year. Tulane will hit 37K, because of homecoming. Others I agree with C15.
