2. Alabama Crimson Tide Fans
You’ve seen the ESPN commercial that pays homage to the “Roll Tide” rally cry that Alabama fans seemingly use on a daily basis. But Tide fans don’t just talk the talk – they walk the walk. Alabama’s attendance has been third-highest in the nation for a while now, averaging over 101,000 per contest – tops in the SEC. They also travel very, very well. Nick Saban has basically reached worship status in Tuscaloosa.
Alabama’s 2014 spring game attendance was over 73,000 – the highest in the nation. It’s a sure bet that Tide fans are already pumped up for this year’s Iron Bowl as the team tries to avenge last year’s heartbreaking loss to Auburn. They’ll also be quick to remind you that they still hold the lead in that rivalry series.
