Michigan is the most popular college football team in the state, according to a poll conducted by Reddit.

Reddit says 921 fans responded and 59.2 percent picked Michigan, 28.8 percent chose Michigan State and 12 percent went with another school.

In Indiana (425 responses), Notre Dame edged Indiana, 32.3 percent to 31.4 percent, and in Oklahoma (500 responses), the Sooners topped Oklahoma State, 43 percent to 38.4 percent.

While the poll is interesting, it is clearly not without flaws. In Alabama, UAB beat Alabama and Auburn by a large margin, and in Illinois, the Fighting Illini’s margin of victory over Big Ten brother Northwestern was 56.4 percent.
