Who says we don't support the pigskin?

 

 

Jacksonville may have an NFL team but it's also one of the nation's top college football markets.

The Media Audit, a Texas-based company that does research studies for the marketing, communications, and media industries, recently released a report detailing the top metro markets among college football fans. Jacksonville came in at No. 8.

According to the study, 69.9 percent of the adults in Jacksonville regularly follow college football on television or radio. Jacksonville was the only city in Florida to finish in the top 10.

The top three markets were Birmingham, Ala. (77.1 percent), Madison, Wisc. (74.1 percent) and Columbus, Ohio (73.5 percent).

The Southeastern Conference leads all leagues with six markets in top 20, including three in the top 10. The Big Ten has five in top 20, including four in the top 10.

The study was conducted in 80 metro markets between January 2010 and March 2011. More than 104,000 people were surveyed.
