By a 43%-34% margin, a plurality of college football fans believe the national media, including ESPN, shows a bias toward the SEC in their college football reporting. In fact, only those fans who live in SEC states believe the national media covers the Power Five fairly – and still nearly 40% of those fans believe there’s an SEC bias.
And, do you believe that the national media, including ESPN, covers the Power Five football conferences fairly OR do you believe they show a bias toward the SEC?
