In honor of Week 1 finally arriving, FOX Sports held a poll to determine the best fans in college football. On Wednesday, the final results were unveiled. 

Believe it or not, Texas Tech won FOX Sports' poll by just 3.4 percent of the vote. 

Overall, the Red Raiders received more than 82,000 votes. That's pretty impressive for a survey that featured countless programs.   

Of course, Texas Tech fans are quite pleased with the results. 

"We already knew but now the rest of the country knows," a Texas Tech fan tweeted.

The rest of the country, however, is quite surprised. 

"They can't even sell out a football game, but I'm sure they have the best fans in college football," another fan said. 

Texas Tech kicks off its season this Saturday against Murray State. That shouldn't be a tough challenge for Joey McGuire's squad.

The Red Raiders will need their fans to show out next weekend when they host the Houston Cougars.
