The team at BetOnline.ag compiled mentions from over 50,000 tweets to determine which opponent is most commonly preferred in every state. The date was compiled using trends software with direct access to geotagged Twitter data. Tweets were analyzed by tracking the hashtags #ALLIN for Clemson and #GeauxTigers for LSU.
When it was all said and down, Twitter users appear to have a virtual 50/50 split over which Tigers they prefer, with LSU dominating the middle of the country while Clemson was favored in the northern and coastal states.
In total, Clemson was favored in 26 states while LSU “won” 24 states.
