College Football Fan Index is the only digital index that combines social media activity and fan voting to determine the ultimate college football fanbase.
It’s an in-depth ranking of the top fanbases as determined through social aggregation and online polling across weekly editorial themes such as best tailgates and best traditions. The index is then measured based on social activity of each school’s fanbase, including sharing photos and videos, as well as the voting results of the weekly polls asking fans to determine which schools offer the best experience.
Following the success of the College Football Fan Index, the same combination of social sharing and fan voting was used to determine which NASCAR drivers had the best fans.
