3 SEC fanbases listed as the favorites to storm the field first in 2018
Storming the field after big wins is a part of being a college football fan, and it provides memories that last a lifetime (trust me, I still remember Mizzou’s big win over No. 1 Oklahoma in 2010).

Surprisingly, Kentucky is listed as the odds-on favorite to be the first group of fans to rush the field, leading the way with -110 odds. Right behind the Wildcats are South Carolina (+150) and Texas A&M (+150):

The Gamecocks and Aggies make sense, because both have big Week 2 home games (vs. Georgia and vs. Clemson, respectively). The Wildcats, meanwhile, start with a game against Central Michigan — a very winnable game that shouldn’t prompt a storming of Kroger Field.
