Georgia Tech football held its spring game on Friday night. Just by taking one look at the above photo, you can tell they had some trouble filling the seats. 

While the official number is unclear at this time, some have speculated that 117 fans attended the game. 

A Georgia Tech spokesman said the actual number was closer to 2,000: 

Bad weather may have played a factor in the embarrassing attendance, as the temperature was in the 40s and there was heavy rain: 

Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson called the weather conditions "miserable" and "as bad as I can remember." 

For comparison, Alabama, Penn State and Auburn all drew over 70,000 fans at its spring games.
