All 3 games associated with the College Football Playoff were sellouts. The B1G had 3 teams involved in those games, with Purdue defeating Tennessee in the Music City Bowl and Ohio State taking down Utah in the Rose Bowl. Michigan lost to Georgia in the Orange Bowl.

After seeing several bowl games played in front of limited or no fans a season ago, it was great to see so many support their teams.
