Rumor has it that folks in the state of Texas take their college football pretty seriously. The Lone Star State has several prominent programs within its borders such as Texas, Texas A&M, TCU, Baylor, Texas Tech and several others.

For a long time, UT was the most successful football program in the state. But lately, times have changed. Baylor, TCU and Texas A&M all currently find themselves in the AP Top 25, while the Longhorns are on the outside looking in.

So fandom in the state should sway with the results on the field, right? Well, not so fast. Earlier this week, Remington Research Group released some statistics on which college football team is most popular in separate regions of Texas. Here are the results:

Though the majority of the map is burnt orange, the actual numbers aren't as overwhelmingly in the Longhorns' favor as the map would seem to suggest. Texas fans make up 32 percent of the state. Texas A&M comes in at 16 percent, while Baylor (7.3 percent), Texas Tech (6.8 percent) and TCU (6.7 percent) round out the top five. Nineteen percent were unsure, and the rest of the people polled root for smaller Texas programs.

Here is a link to the official survey results.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
