College Football Team Travel Maps

MapGameDay.com has a new section called the Travel Map. The section contains conference and team road game data collected for regular season games from the 1998 through the 2007 NCAA Football schedule. As you might guess, any conference with a team in Hawaii would probably lead the rankings in miles traveled and the WAC does not disappoint. What amazed me though was that Georgia has traveled a total of 358 miles for non-conference road games (only traveling out of conference to Georgia Tech and Clemson) since 1998 but Hawaii has traveled 72,918 total miles (coupled with the fact that they still have to travel 4,037.56 miles to play LaTech in conference). The Travel Map is very interesting to see how little large schools travel out of conference (Arizona State is no exception). The conference rankings are below:

Conference Travel Miles
WAC 327,521
Conference USA 278,991
MWC 188,308
Sun Belt 154,512
PAC 10 150,990
MAC 127,212
Big East 127,076
Big Ten 107,881
ACC 101,545
Big 12 73,183
SEC 42,141
