How come folks can go to an outdoor concert with no raised eyebrows but no one is allowed  in a football stadium

even at 25% normal for spacing?
Who says no one is allowed in a stadium? The University of Texas plans to allow 25% of capacity.

Yup, we're about to get our first major test in the Austin area.

Texas Motor Speedway hosted a NASCAR race in July that had somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000 fans.  Of course, that venue is more spread out than is Memorial Stadium in Austin.

Like I said before, I wouldn't worry at all about being inside the football stadium at 25% capacity.  The real problem is the confined access to bathrooms, concessions, and the always-packed lines for entrance and egress before and after the game.

The Southwest Texas State game against SMU in San Marcos last weekend had a reported attendance of 7,500. Having watched the game, that seems a little high to me, probably more like 4K-5K.

If those were two SEC teams it would be called a defensive masterpiece.
