Can FAU Football fans manage to finish first and last at the same time?

New statistics from NBC’s Portland outlet, KGW news, say that the school’s supporters lead the state in getting arrested, but are last in getting kicked out.

KGW reached out to every Football Bowl Subdivision school to ask how many fans were ejected and arrested per game. FAU finished last out of all teams with no ejections, but had the most arrests among more established programs in the state.

University of Miami did not report their arrest or ejection numbers. They were the lone Football Bowl Subdivision team in the state not to do so. The University of South Carolina finished with the most ejections total out of all the teams, with 496 total among 538,441 fans.

Of the 128 programs, 122 in the subdivision reported some or all of their data.
