In a poll conducted by the Remington Research Group, 1,900 individuals were subjected between August and September of this year to vote for the state of Texas’ most preferred college team. And while it’s been tanking for the last three seasons and hasn’t experienced dominance since the mid- to late-2000s, the Texas Longhorns received 32 percent of the vote, edging out SEC member, Texas A&M, who sat at 16 percent.

Clearly, Texas Tech is favored along the state’s panhandle, while A&M’s approval of fans runs diagonally down the center of the state. In the bottom tier, Baylor and TCU – regardless of being in the AP Poll’s top five – collected 7.3 and 6.7 percent of the votes, respectively.
Maybe this will cheer the Longhorns up after opening their season with three points against a non-conference opponent, but then again the majority doesn’t always speak the truth.
