I'm not so sure of those numbers. Granted I didn't live in State College, but I lived in Harrisburg for years and it was a pretty even split, with probably a slight edge to Pitt fans. Hockey was the closest split, but still I think there were more Pitt fans. Baseball and Football was a pretty big mix of Eagles, Steelers, Ravens, and Redskins (I used to hang out at a Redskins bar) for the NFL and Pirates, Phillies, Orioles, and Nats (lots of Nats fans out there becuase of the Senators being in Harrisburg).
