Chad Gibbs found football at the age of eight, found God one year later, and has spent the rest of his life worshiping one of the two. He and his wife currently live in Auburn, Alabama, with their dogs Bob Vance and Harper. Gibbs is the author of "God and Football: Faith and Fanaticism in the SEC."

A passionate Christian and fanatical college football fan, Chad Gibbs discusses his book, "God and Football: Faith and Fanaticism in the SEC," a humorous look at the intersection of religion and football in the South. A graduate of Auburn University, Gibbs traveled to the 12 schools of the Southeastern Conference during game weekends to discover how others are able to balance their passion for their team with their devotion to God.
