The state of Louisiana is a football hotbed and College Spun’s list of best college football states recognizes that fact.
The website compiled a list of the 12 best states — not teams — and Louisiana came in at No. 11. Here’s what the College Spun staff had to say about the home of the LSU Tigers:
Fall Saturdays don’t get much better than the ones that take place in Baton Rouge, La., which is home to what probably is the most intimidating college football stadium in the country. Night games are college football at its best, and no one does night games better than LSU. Watching LSU take on an SEC foe after the sun goes down at Tiger Stadium has to be on every college football fan’s bucket list.
New Orleans might be the best big college football city, too. The Sugar Bowl is consistently one of the most enjoyable bowl game experiences and Bourbon Street is potentially the best area in the country to pregame for a big contest.
What do you think of where Louisiana landed on the list? Is No. 11 too low or did College Spun get it right? If you’re wondering where your state ended up, you can find the complete list here.
