Can 49ers fans take over University of Phoenix when they face Cardinals?

The 49ers travel to Glendale, Arizona to face the Cardinals. Opposing fans have had a good showing at the Glendale stadium. Can 49ers fans do it again on Sunday?

The San Francisco 49ers opened the 2014 season by going on the road and defeating the Dallas Cowboys. One of the highlights of the game was the huge presence of 49ers fans at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The stadium appeared in some spots to be as much as half full of 49ers fans. Jerry Jones tried to explain it away as affluent fans, expensive tickets, and how great Jerry World is to visit.

Whatever the reason, the 49ers traveled well. And now, they head back on the road for their second game, this time against the Arizona Cardinals. When Jones was talking about the 49ers crowd, he mentioned how Cowboys fans travel well to Arizona, and how it often feels like a home-away-from-home. Bruce Arians was asked about it, and how the crowd might be for what is a pretty big game for the 2-0 Cardinals

Well, we had a great crowd for our Monday Night game, on the opener. Historically visiting teams have had access to tickets here, and hopefully our guys are keeping theirs.

The 49ers are 12-9 all time on the road against the Cardinals. Of course, it is worth noting that the first six such games were in St. Louis. The 49ers and Chicago Cardinals played two games prior to that, but both were in San Francisco. The 49ers have claimed nine of the last ten games, and generally dominated this series over the last five years. Getting a win is the most important thing by a significant margin, but it will be interesting to see what kind of presence 49ers fans will have at the game.
