NCAA's Best College Fan Base: Alabama or LSU?
Many sports fans claim to love their teams, but there is no community more passionate about their clan than college sports fans. Whether its the sweet smell of an irresistible tailgate or the eardrum-shattering chants at a game, fans of NCAA sports know how to have a good time.
Despite having larger venues in college football, fans have no trouble filling the seats and making their environment as inhospitable as possible. We at the Tylt love college sports fans, and their rapid support of their teams. And that's why we want to know who is the loudest and proudest 12th man in the NCAA. Will your team win?
Here, we have the Alabama Crimson Tide vs. LSU Tigers. Alabama rolled through hated rival Auburn in its first-round matchup with 79.9 percent of the vote. LSU topped Oklahoma after an up and down battle with 79 percent of the vote to advance to the second round. Who will make it to the final four?

With five national championships in the last eight years, the Crimson Tide have heard their "Rammer Jammer" victory song a lot. Their recent success has only grown their army of super fans into a rapid nation that has no problem letting you know they just whopped you up and down the field.
Say what you will about their manners, but don't deny how loud and proud they are for their team. It doesn't matter where the team goes on Saturday. You'll always find a line of RVs, trucks, and vans driving from Tuscaloosa to wherever the Crimson Tide are playing. The Alabama faithful are a force to reckon with.
Welcome to Death Valley. The day might start innocently enough with Tiger fans luring opponents in with some of the best food Louisiana has to offer. But when you enter the stadium, you are greeted with a stadium filled with the loudest fans you'll ever meet.
This isn't anything new for LSU. They have been known as one of the most raucous fans bases in the country for a while now. Even legendary Alabama head coach Bear Bryant acknowledged how difficult it is to play in Death Valley:
Baton Rouge happens to be the worst place in the world for a visiting team. It’s like being inside a drum.
