Hey, OU and OSU football fans: Just how popular is your favorite team?

by Richard Hall Published: August 30, 2013


College football season is upon us, and thank God for that. Everywhere around the state, people are wearing their team’s colors to show support and loyalty. Even here, in The Oklahoman‘s newsroom, the staff seems split between OU and OSU, with a few stray Kansas and Missouri fans (but we ignore those people and pretend they don’t exist).

While OU and OSU are popular teams within the state, just how popular are they around the nation? What about other colleges?

Deadspin has a great map showing just that, which uses Facebook data to detail what teams are popular where.

If you're having a tough time spotting OSU on the map, just set your eyes on Payne County.
