The analysts went beyond just likes of each team's official fan pages to gather the context of the mentions to create this map.

The result is a resounding 45 states that prefer Urban Meyer and his Ohio State Buckeyes, while just Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah and Marcus Mariota's home state of Hawaii are leaning towards the Ducks.
