Nielsen Map Shows Where College Football Interest Is Highest Across United States

Nielsen recently published its State of the Media: 2015 Year in Sports Media Report, which looks into the insights and trends across the United States' sports properties. 

Part of the report includes a cool map that showcases where college football interest is highest - and lowest - in America.

The results aren't too surprising. Where college football is at its best - SEC country, Ohio, Texas, etc. - the interest is high. Where college football is not so great - Northeast, Southwest - the interest is fairly low.

The Big Ten and SEC's TV deals are a lot bigger than every other conference's for a reason, after all. This map is decent proof as to why that is.
