This is one debate that is bound to continue for a long time.
College football fans are certainly not scared to debate anything. Arguing which conferences, coaches, and quarterbacks are the best is always a surefire way to stir people’s emotions.
One debate that is particularly interesting is deciding which college football town is the best in America. There are no doubt a number of factors to consider, some of which go beyond just the game day experience at the stadium.
Fortunately, Joan Niesen with Sports Illustrated took the time to compile a list of the top 10 college football towns in the country. The conclusion? Madison reigns supreme:
Nestled around Lakes Mendota and Monona, Madison is about as picturesque as it gets…And when it’s too cold to take advantage of the lakes, Madison offers a great food and bar scene—drink Spotted Cow while you’re within the Wisconsin state lines—plus, it’s worthwhile to freeze for a late-season football game here.
Ann Arbor was the only other B1G school to make the list and came in at No. 4. Athens, Georgia; Austin, Texas; and Columbia, Missouri rounded out the top five.
