Norman ranks as No. 2 college football town for 2014 Published: June 5, 2014

Bleacher Report has released its list of the top college football towns for 2014, and Norman is near the top.

Only mighty Ann Arbor, Mich., -- home of the Michigan Wolverines -- is rated better than the home of the Sooners. From Bleacher Report's article:

"It's one of those towns where, on gameday, the action isn't limited to the college campus or just around the football stadium. The rally cries are heard in all parts of Norman, as locals and tourists mingle together and swap stories of their collective love for the Sooner Schooner and Bob Stoops' latest squad of superstars.

"What Norman has going for it that a lot of college towns don't is its proximity to the state's "big city," in this case Oklahoma City. The boroughs are just up or down the road from each other, keeping Norman from feeling out-of-the-way while still holding onto that small-town charm."

If you were wondering, Austin is rated No. 12 on the list, and Stillwater gets an honorable mention nod.
