There will be 15,000 Syracuse fans there and 60,000 ND fans.

That's before the Big Ten even existed, the additions aren't similar in any way.

Penn St was added because it is (was) a great football program at a university in similar ranking to most Big Ten schools. Maryland and Rutgers are 100% about BTN subscriptions.
