Clemson's Memorial Stadium voted #1 Stadium in CFB
Death Valley voted #1 Stadium in College Football.
McLean, Va., September 25, 2014 – Through five weeks of the college football season, the Oregon Ducks have owned the number one fan base in the country four times—including this week, according to the USA TODAY Sports College Football Fan Index presented by Degree®.
The College Football Fan Index presented by Degree® is an in-depth ranking of the top college football fan bases as determined through social chatter aggregation and online fan voting across weekly editorial fan-driven themes. The index, launched prior to this season, is measured based on the social activity of each school’s fan base, as well as the voting results of weekly themed polls that ask fans to determine which schools offer the best fan experience.
Michigan, which fell to the No. 5 spot last week, moves up to the No. 2 spot in this week’s poll, followed by Texas A&M (No. 3), Oklahoma (No. 4) and LSU (No. 5).
In this week’s Fan Index theme voting, Clemson’s Memorial Stadium was voted as the “Best Stadium” in college football.
The Fan Index will be updated each Thursday throughout the season, with the final, cumulative Fan Index for the 2014 college football season, crowning one school’s fan base as the best of the best, to be released on Thursday, December 11th.
As the presenting sponsor, Degree® is motivating fans across the country to DO:MORE to support their favorite college football team so they can improve and win throughout the season. Degree® with improved MOTIONSENSE® gives fans the protection they need to give their all for their team, whether they’re cheering in the stands, showing team spirit by posting on Twitter from the pre-game tailgate, or rallying their friends to participate in the weekly-themed USA TODAY Fan Index vote.
There is no limit to the amount of times a fan can vote for their favorite team. Beyond voting on a weekly basis, fans will be encouraged to DO:MORE supporting their favorite schools and be as creative as possible sharing photos and videos in order to achieve a high social ranking as part of the Fan Index chart by using the hashtag #fanindex on social media. The Fan Index has created direct alignment with more than 100 NCAA FBS schools and their social media networks (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, etc.). The social activity will be tracked weekly, with rankings released each Thursday at the end of the voting period for each week’s poll theme.
