Schools in the SEC and Big 10 have the most engaged fan bases in college football, according to a new formula by TicketCity.com.
The website released a list of the 25 most engaged fan bases in the sport this week. The criteria: attendance, home attendance, ticket prices, home ticket prices, attendance percentage, Facebook likes, and Twitter followers.
Based on that formula, the University of Michigan came out No. 1. Their chief rivals, Ohio State, came in at No. 4.
In all, seven Big 10 schools, 10 SEC schools, three Big 12 schools, two Pac 12 schools, and three ACC schools made the list.
Here’s the ranking:
- Ohio State
- Texas A&M
- Penn State
- South Carolina
- Michigan State
- West Virginia
- Florida State
- Virginia Tech
It’s a little skewed toward schools with large stadiums, but perhaps that makes sense.
