What Super Bowl Team is Idaho Rooting For and Other Fun Super Bowl Tidbits
Even though the gem state does not have an NFL team, we love football here in Idaho. Put together house parties with tons of yummy food and cheering at the TV, yup Idahoans are all over it. This year the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles go head-to-head in Super Bowl LVII.
Who is Idaho rooting for this year? Insider created a map that shows which team each state is rooting for in this year's Super Bowl. This is not a foolproof method but at least gives us a good idea. Insider used the "betonline.ag team used Twitter trends to determine the most popular Super Bowl team by state. They analyzed geotagged Twitter data from more than 217,000 tweets sent out across the country, flagging the use of hashtags, like #ChiefsKingdom, #FlyEaglesFly, and more, to differentiate between Kansas City fans and Philadelphia's faithful. According to that the Eagles have a slight edge on Patrick Mahomes' Chiefs with 28 states in their corner."
Idaho is one of those states in the majority with more Idahoans cheering on the Eagles. "The Eagles, however, have the support of the vast majority of the Eastern Seaboard as well as a huge swath of land in the West from Idaho down to Arizona and New Mexico." -Insider
