NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--

Sense Networks, the original Big Data mobile location company, today released the results of its third Mobile Advertising Pulse (News - Alert), which breaks down three common activities across this nation's college campuses - Staying out late, Fast Food Fans and Coffee Lovers. While gathering over 1.2 million mobile data points across college campuses including University of Notre Dame, The University of Southern California, The University of Oklahoma and The University of Michigan from September through November, Sense Networks was able to pit rivals against each other following college football's rivalry weekend.

Analysis of students' mobile location and mobile shopping data showed:

  • Auburn University vs. The University of Alabama
    • Auburn students eat 27 percent more fast food than the Crimson Tide
  • The University of Florida vs. The University of Georgia
    • Gators drink 30 percent more coffee than the Bulldogs

    • Buckeyes stay up laer 14 percent more than the Wolverines

  • Notre Dame vs. USC
    • USC students were up later 23 percent more than their rivals in South Bend, Indiana
  • Harvard students go to Starbucks more than any other school
  • USC students visit McDonald's more than any other school

"As the college football regular season winds down, we thought we'd take a look at how some of these university students stack up against each other," said David Petersen, CEO, Sense Networks. "We're also in the midst of one of the busiest shopping and advertising times of the year and as consumers shift away from browsing on desktop computers to browsing on smartphones and tablet computers, the information they see needs to be relevant - we can unlock this relevancy by interpreting mobile audiences' behavioral attributes from their historical location data."
