Auburn held its annual spring game on Saturday. The Tigers played a glorified scrimmage and head coach Gus Malzahn came away impressed with what he witnessed.

"It was good to see those guys out in front of a crowd," Malzahn told reporters after the game. "Overall, both sides of the football got after it and had fun out there playing in front of our home crowd."

The "home crowd" he's talking about was a light one. Attendance for the game, officially listed at just over 28,000 - was not great.

The weather wasn't good and the game was being played on Masters' weekend, so plenty of Tigers fans likely felt that they had better things to do. Still, the pictures are not great.

Auburn's crowd, while small for a program of its stature, does rank No. 1 among all spring games right now. However, almost no other major programs have played theirs. By the time the spring season wraps up, the Tigers' crowd won't rank anywhere close to the top.

Here's a look at the top crowds so far.

Programs like Nebraska, Ohio State and Alabama will likely have the top crowds this year. They are set to play their spring games in the coming weeks.
