In a previous blog article, we addressed the issue of travel for bowl teams and how that affects their fan base.  Below please find the teams who travel the furthest to get to their bowl destination:

  • Buffalo: 2,386 miles
  • Boise State: 2,836 miles
  • Oregon State: 2,542 miles
  • Michigan State: 2,213 miles
  • Northern Illinois: 2,018 miles
  • Central Florida: 2,149 miles
  • Michigan: 2,022 miles
  • Oregon: 2,205 miles
  • Florida State: 2,255 miles
  • Auburn: 2,200 miles

Purely from a travel standpoint, Utah State, Texas, North Texas, South Carolina, Stanford and Colorado State have an advantage over their opponents.  Meanwhile, Tulane gets to play at home Saturday in the New Orleans Bowl.  We hope you enjoyed the second installment of our NCAA Bowl Betting Guide.
