Pac-12 Football: Power Ranking the Conference's 5 Most Intense Fanbases

Oregon fans are known for getting loud in support of the Ducks.

Pac-12 fans may not quite stack up with those from the SEC in terms of intensity, but the conference of champions has supporters who can be found around the world.

While it may be difficult to measure intensity or compare it to other college football conferences, you still wouldn't want to stand in the way of an argument between a UCLA and USC fan—or a Husky and a Cougar. Heck, even the Buffaloes and Utes have mustered up some animosity.

Then again, intensity isn't measured solely in hatred for rival programs. It's about how a win feels on Saturday versus the long, cold week following a loss. If neither result has an impact on the rest of your week, you don't belong anywhere near this list.

Naturally, our list will have a modern feel, as there's really no way to gauge the amount of support teams such as Oregon State or Washington State had 45 years ago. The easiest way to make the cut as a program is by filling the stadium, making it loud and having a presence outside the venue itself.

Though it may seem obvious, keep in mind that this relates to the football portion of each fanbase, so UCLA's strong basketball following or Arizona's terrific softball crowds have no weight here.

So which Pac-12 teams have the most intense fanbases?
