Thanksgiving Fan Loyalty Poll
by Mo Johnson
So, who is on your ultimate Thanksgiving Day guest list?
In this week’s Discover Card Fan Loyalty Poll, most college football fans said they would rather eat Thanksgiving dinner with their favorite team instead of their cheerleaders, the band, the mascot, or the refs.
When asked what they’re most thankful for about their favorite team, most said the coach.
Discover Fans agreed this week with other polls on the two best college football teams in the country right now. Notre Dame was on top followed by Alabama, with Oregon falling to third. Texas A&M also dropped off from the top five, only to be replaced with Georgia and LSU, who tied for fifth.
While Notre Dame is ranked number one, most fans polled do not believe that based on the teams listed above, the Fighting Irish will win the national championship this year. The Crimson Tide rolled back into the top spot with 46 percent of the vote.
The 15-week Discover Fan Loyalty Poll is conducted by Rasmussen Reports, a nationally recognized leader in polling, who gathers sentiment by phone from 800 college football fans who follow games at least once per week on television, radio, in person or online.
Discover launched the Fan Loyalty Poll to give die-hard fans a platform to showcase their dedication and love for their favorite college football team leading up to the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game and 2013 Discover Orange Bowl. Each week the poll offers new questions about what college football fans are thinking this season.
Beyond title sponsorship of the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game and 2013 Discover Orange Bowl, Discover’s commitment to college football includes relationships with ESPN and Notre Dame Football on NBC.
