Closest FBS Stadium to Each County
Saw this in another forum and thought it was an interesting map. Tech's stadium accounts for 39 counties and 1.3 million in population.

I wonder if Minny actually has fans in those regions though. I figure NDSU has a strong hold despite being FCS.

I live 30 minutes from Minnesota and most local TV stations come out of Minnesota. Aside from high school hockey, wrestling, and high school girls basketball, pro sports seems to rule the roost. That map would more nearly reflect Vikings fandom than Gophers football which probably place 4th behind the NFL, MLB, and the NHL in Minneapolis.

I'm in Iowa 2 hours south of the university and there are absolutely no fans or interest in Minnesota football here. Just Vikings and Twins.

Actually, if you examine the Western (or Eastern as you get past the IDL), it gets closer to Hawaii.

Some of the westernmost Aleutian islands, I guess. i don't know how Alaska defines it's counties.

so not the ENTIRE state, just the vast majority.
