I take football for TV as a done deal now. My guess would be that the first game will be season ticket holders and the visitor's official party only, so about 25,000 minus no shows for the first game. Spread out as you wish.I am growing slightly more optimistic about the odds that football will be played as scheduled this fall - but I just don't see fans in the stands at all this season.
The current case numbers and fatalities would have to go down considerably before that happens. Potentially, I could see some kind of a system with a cap on attendance - maybe 25% full - by the end of the season. Warning - they could make mask-wearing a requirement.
As far as the U - here's a wild guess:
they announce two plans - one with fans in the stands and one with no stands. fans will still have to make deposits, etc - which would be refunded at some future date if no fans are allowed - OR (more likely) the deposits would carry over to 2021.
