That's just within city limits. THE SMSA (area) populations of Seattle, Boston, Atlanta, DC far exceed Austin.

Clemson is really an extension of Upstate South Carolina. While relatively self contained, it us close enough to Greenville and Anderson to be part of their orbit too. Places like Starkville, Pullman, or State College are college towns surrounded by fields.

College Park is basically in the DC area. It really shouldn't be on any tiny population list.

I've spent four years in Urbana/Champaign, IL and two years in State College, PA. They are in the middle of nowhere but they are in Illinois and Pennsylvania respectively and get many of their students from big cities/suburban areas like the Chicago, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh areas. Charlottesville of course comes from Virginia and I'm guessing draws from the DC area as does Virginia Tech. Then you have Clemson which is from a tiny state and isn't close to anywhere (about 150 miles from Charlotte and Atlanta but that's pushing it). Oxford is from a tiny state but is about 86 miles from Memphis.

But the award for the most irrelevant college town in P5? Starkville. Irrelevant state and nowhere near any relevant city. They really should be an FCS team, definitely not in the #1 conference.

Just like Univ of Maryland is basically in DC, Boulder, Colorado is basically a suburb of Denver.
