How well does your state do college football?
Let’s find out.
With the 2015 season roughly two weeks away, we wanted to rank the best college football states – not teams or programs – but actual states. Alabama. Ohio. Texas. Etc.
What makes a good college football state? Well, the same things that make college football great: the fans, the stadiums, the pageantry, the passion, etc.
The top college football states are states you can visit and talk about the sport with just about anyone you meet. You can walk into a random bar, which is probably littered with school memorabilia, on a random day and discuss the upcoming season with the person next to you. You can feel college football walking around, as crazy as that sounds.
So, using some objective statistics like attendance numbers, spring game turnout, and some subjective areas of debate like how much does (X state) love college football?, we’re ranking the top 12 college football states.
