Badgers move to #5 in College Football Playoff rankings

MADISON — The home of the Wisconsin Badgers is apparently the best college football town in the United States.

Sports Illustrated put Madison, Wisconsin at #1 on their list "College Football's Greatest College Towns." The list was compiled to celebrate college football's 150th anniversary.

SI gave Madison the following review:

Nestled around Lakes Mendota and Monona, Madison is about as picturesque as it gets, and the Terrace at Memorial Union on campus at the University of Wisconsin might be the most delightful spot in the Midwest—at least four months out of the year. And when it's too cold to take advantage of the lakes, Madison offers a great food and bar scene—drink Spotted Cow while you're within the Wisconsin state lines—plus, it's worthwhile to freeze for a late-season football game here.

Other teams that made the top 10 include the homes of Texas A&M, Ole Miss, and the University of Michigan.
