[ATTENDANCE WATCH] College soccer continues to ride a wave of increasing popularity, evidence of which were the record crowds enjoyed by both No. 1 Louisville and Akron, the team it lost to in the 2010 Men's College Cup final, on Saturday. But there also record crowds at UAB and College of Charleston and the biggest turnout at Bowling Green in 15 years ...

Louisville won its battle with Preseason No. 2 UCLA, 2-0, in front of a record crowd of 7,821 at Cardinal Park. The previous Louisville record wa s 5,562 set against Ohio State in last year’s Sweet 16.

Akron beat Cleveland State, 5-0, before a record-setting crowd of 5,241 fans at FirstEnergy Stadium-Cub Cadet Field (formerly known as Jackson Field).

-- UAB drew 3,141 fans -- a regular-season attendance record for West Campus Field -- for its 2-1 season-opening victory over Clemson Saturday night. “What a perfect night it was,” UAB head coach Mike Getman said. “It was a great crowd that was loud and gave us a lot of energy. Our fans raised the intensity of our team and we couldn’t have won without the terrific crowd."

-- In spite of the postponement of the game scheduled to be Friday's NSCAA Game of the Week opener on Fox Soccer, College of Charleston set a school record of 2,931 fans for Sunday's match against South Carolina.

-- Bowling Green drew a crowd of 2,133 -- more than triple the previous largest crowd at Cochrane Field in the last 15 years -- for its 2-0 win over 2010 NCAA Division I semifinalist Michigan.

    D3 Messiah College is regularly posting attendance numbers that beat the vast majority on D1 schools. No discussion of college soccer fan attendance is complete without recognizing that fact.
