So here are the top-10 media markets, according to Digital Syndicate Network. Below each I’ve added a few of the football-playing colleges that are in that area or close to that area. I reason that if there’s more expansion by the conferences, they might target non-BCS schools that have some regional familiarity with these markets.

8. Washington D.C.
Towson, James Madison, Old Dominion (though it’s a regional stretch)
Georgia State, Georgia Southern (like ODU, a regional stretch).
UTSA, Texas State,
