MEREDITH SHEFFER — The State

South Carolina has been ranked as the No. 1 state for college football by the Bleacher Report.

“When searching for the best college football, from top to bottom, look no further than the Palmetto State,” according to the website. “Though South Carolina and Clemson are the only FBS programs, they’re regularly among the top teams in the country.

“Both 11-2 a year ago (which includes Clemson’s loss to South Carolina), both are on three-year streaks of 10 or more wins. Each won its bowl game in 2013, with Clemson taking the Orange Bowl over Ohio State and South Carolina downing Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl.”

Bleacher Report said some states might have better individual teams or more good ones, but “there’s one thing South Carolina has on all of them, or rather, doesn’t have: no scrubs.”

The rest of the Top 5 states: 2. Alabama, 3. California, 4. Texas and 5. Florida.
