SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Alamo Bowls involving teams from the state of Texas have attracted more than 65,000 to the San Antonio Alamodome.

But not since 2005 has an Alamo Bowl involving two out of state teams drawn more than Friday’s game between Washington State and Iowa State.

Friday’s attendance was announced at 60,675, making it the 14th highest-attended game in Alamo Bowl history.

The game’s attendance record was set in 2007, when Penn State and Texas A&M drew a total of 66,166 fans to the Alamodome. The last time two out of state teams brought in more than Friday’s game between the Cougars and Cyclones was in 2005, when Kansas State and Purdue drew a crowd of 60,780.
