[CROWD COUNT] UC Santa Barbara remains on course to shatter its NCAA soccer average attendance record.

The Gauchos are averaging 6,619 and have drawn five crowds of more than 5,000 so far this year. They set the modern-day record when they averaged 4,335 in 2009.

Of the 20 schools with the highest average attendance, every one of them is averaging more than it averaged for 2009.

Ohio State's average attendance is up 268 percent, Penn State is up 229 percent, and South Carolina is up 211 percent.

There are 35 Division I men's schools averaging more than 1,000 fans a game -- up from 27 in 2009 -- and eight schools are averaging more than 2,500 a game -- up from two in 2009.
