Everyone knows the largest TV audience for college football is New York City. But do you know NYC's top 10 schools in fan numbers?
Nate Silver of the New York Times has the answer:
- Notre Dame
- Penn State
- Miami (Florida)
- Ohio State
- Boston College
The list illuminates the method in the ACC's recent expansion madness. The league is now home to three of the Big Apple's ten favourite football teams. It may soon soon be home to half.
And the list is just for football. Loyalties would remain much the same for basketball, a sport for which the NYC audience would be even larger and in which schools like Connecticut and Syracuse make a greater impact.
