Ranking the largest fan bases in college football

Tony Altimore of Altimore Collins & Company did something really cool that should give a few college football ,

fan bases some serious bragging rights – even if their teams aren’t winning games.

Thanks to Altimore’s combining of studies from The New York Times and FiveThirtyEight, plus data from the 2020 U.S. Census ,

and Google trends, Altimore was able to estimate the size of every FBS fan base.

Altimore was also able to take it a step further by ranking the conferences with the most fans.

 The SEC leads the way with an estimated 54.1 million fans, followed by the Big Ten with 44.6 million.

The Georgia Bulldogs of course rank amongst the programs with one of the largest fan bases,

 but you may be surprised to see that the DawgNation is actually a bit lower on the list than you might expect.
