What are the 25 most engaged fanbases in college football?

If we asked typical college football fans to rank the top 25 most intense fanbases, chances are we'd get 25 different answers. Do you measure total attendance, Twitter and Facebook followers, the amount of fans that show up at media days or the size of your message board community. 

Online ticket broker TicketCity came up with their own metrics, ranking programs on the basis of seven categories. Not surprisingly, five of them are tied to attendance and/or ticket prices while the other two measure Facebook and Twitter followings. Programs were rated on all seven categories and given a total score. Without getting fully involved in the details, the more people you play in front of, the higher you'll be ranked. 

You won't be surprised to learn the SEC is all over this list, but they don't own the No. 1 spot.
