Which college football team is most popular in your county?
The New York Times is here to help with that. The paper has made an interactive map that shows the three most popular college football programs in every county in the country.
Ohio State, for example, is the most popular program in every county in Ohio. The Buckeyes are the second-most popular team in a number of neighboring state’s counties, too.
Florida, meanwhile, is more varied, with Florida State, Miami, and Florida each being the most popular program in different counties.
Here’s the map. Check it out:
Are you surprised by any of the results? Texas being the second-and-third-most popular team in many counties in Illinois is a little strange, as is Oregon being a popular team in various counties in the Midwest.
How different will this map look in 10 years?
