After three weeks of dedicated voting from residents all over the nation, Garden & Gun has announced the winner: Blacksburg, Virginia as the Best Southern College Town.

On its website, Garden & Gun wrote, “At the start of March Madness, we launched our own bracket: thirty-two college towns from across the South going head to head for the title of Garden & Gun reader favorite. After more than 625,000 votes and some very tough matchups, readers selected Blacksburg (home of Virginia Tech) as their pick for the best Southern college town. Congratulations to the town of Blacksburg, Virginia.”


Oxford, Mississippi comes in second after trouncing the hometowns of Ole Miss Rebels’ football rivals: Baton Rouge, Louisiana – home of LSU Tigers; Tuscaloosa, Alabama – home of the Crimson Tide and Knoxville, Tennessee – home of the Tennessee Vols. Oxford also triumphed over Bowling Green, Kentucky where Ole Miss’ Athletics Director, Ross Bjork, had previously worked as the athletics director for the West Kentucky Hilltoppers.

We at HottyToddy.com thank our readers for voting on Oxford’s behalf. The competition was a good run, and it is an honor that Oxford has gotten this far in the brackets.
