We all know the loyalty from the fans at some larger schools such as 'Bama, Oregon, Syracuse, Clemson, UNC, etc, but what about some loyal fans from smaller, non Power 5 Schools? Who has the loyalest fans from the smaller schools that are in conferences such as the American Athletic Conference, CUSA, Missouri Valley Conference, Mountain West Conference, etc? I know UCONN and Cincinnati have a pretty good loyal fans. Some of these smaller schools have fair weather fans that only show up when the team is playing well, although I guess the same could be said if a school like Oregon has a bad year.

Theyre trying to be an in betweener like Notre Dame. BYU because of its church affiliation has fans all over the country and has the highest attendance of any non P5 team.

Depends on what we mean by Loyalty

As a University of Toledo alum ('03) my junior and senior years we sold out every home game and set home attendance records it seemed every weekend we were at home.

At the same time if you walked around the campus you'd see college ball caps from at least a dozen or so schools being sported.

Also once you got out of the Toledo metro area it was tough to find UT apparel.



Chriscross309,

I've met some die hard Marshall fans in my time.

Montana. I am a fan of one of their rivals and I think Griz fans are possibly the best and most passionate in college football.

Boise State

NDSU

Wyoming
