A recently published map illustrates that Michigan roots for two teams equally when it comes to college football.

The two schools represented are, of course, the University of Michigan and Michigan State University, which are both known for their dedicated band of followers. 

The map comes to us via the New York Times and via Facebook, which looked at the number of in-state "likes" each team received. 

Think this is an accurate representation of local college football fandom? Drop your thoughts in the comment section below.
