College basketball blue blood Kentucky is three counties behind with 116, followed by Minnesota at 97 counties. Arkansas (96) and Nebraska (88) round out the Top 5.

Perennial powerhouse Duke claims 20 counties--though just three at in North Carolina. The Blue Devils clearly have a national fan base but face stiff competition in their own state from the likes of North Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest.

One program enjoys a 100 percent share of its state’s fans: the Arkansas Razorbacks, claiming all 75 counties, as well as a handful in Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming. The West Virginia Mountaineers and Maryland Terrpains both come close in their respective home states. Minnesota is also the clear most popular team in its state.
