EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Super Bowl 50 is only three short days away and you can watch it on 6 News.

While football fans from all over the country will be rooting for the Denver Broncos or the Carolina Panthers, the question is which cities have the most football fans?

The website WalletHub.com looked at more than 200 cities in America to answer that question.

WalletHub looked at cities in the country that have a pro football team and/or a college football team to determine the score.

And you might be surprised where East Lansing lands in the ranking.

According to the website East Lansing ranks 5th as the best city for football fans.

Again out of 245 cities listed, Spartan fans were pretty close to the top of the list.
