It can also be used to rank NCAA football stadiums. (The new season is upon us, after all.)
In our newly released 2017 Voice of the Fan Report: NCAA Football, we analyzed 140,000 online reviews and used a natural language algorithm to rank NCAA football stadiums for the best bands, most loyal alumni, loudest crowds, tailgates, and most school spirit.
What we found: The Big Ten, Big 12, and SEC have a significantly better fan experience than the other major conferences. The Big Ten Ranked highest for school spirit.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the most notable findings among the major teams in the Big Ten:
University of Wisconsin–Madison. The Badgers ranked first for school spirit and had the top-rated band.
University of Nebraska. The Cornhuskers, who have sold out every home game since 1962, had the second overall stadium and had the third highest score for school spirit.
Northwestern University. The Wildcats were No. 1 for most loyal alumni, with a higher percentage of stadium reviews mentioning alumni than any other team.
Michigan State. The Spartans had the third most loyal alumni and the sixth best band overall.
Ohio State. Ohio State's "The Horseshoe" was the 10th highest rated stadium, while the school also boasted the fourth highest rated band.
