Athlon's Panel Of College Football Experts Ranks Athens, Georgia As The Sport's Best Town

Ahead of the 2016 season, Athlon asked a panel of college football experts from various publications to rank their favorite college football towns, and the home of a prominent SEC program took the top spot. Athens, Ga. comes in at No. 1 in the Top 10 list. Yahoo!'s Pat Forde explained why in the piece:

“It has it all. A great downtown area with a lot of great restaurants and bars, a pretty campus and my favorite football stadium.”
