Texas HS games draws more fans than bowls

Two Texas state championship games have drawn more fans than any bowl game that has been played thus far.

The New Orleans Bowl (Louisiana Lafayette vs. San Diego State) has been the most attended game so far with a head count of 42,841 and last nights Independence Bowl (Missouri vs. North Carolina) wasn't too far behind with 41,728 in attendance.

According to Clay Travis, the two Texas games that drew more fans than any bowl game were match ups between Southlake Carrol and Fort Bend Hightower (42,896), and Aledo and Manuel (43,369). The Aledo vs. Manuel game was the fifth largest crowd to ever see a Texas high school football game.

This is further indisputable proof that Texas high school football is king.
