A map recently published in the New York Times illustrates that there's only one team Ohioans tend to root for when it comes to college football.

That team, of course, is OSU. 

Local fans know that backing the Buckeyes is far more than a casual hobby, it's a lifestyle choice, and one that many are introduced to at birth.  

This map, based on the number of in-state "likes" the OSU football team's Facebook page has received, doesn't leave room for any other college football followings.
