Default Alabama/A&M...Most Watched Football Game in 23 Years

Wow...

Quote:
There was plenty of hype leading up to last Saturday’s game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Texas A&M Aggies and it generated enough interest in the big game to draw record ratings for CBS, according to a release from the network on Sunday afternoon.

The game earned a whopping overnight household rating of 9.0, which is the most since 1990 when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish took on the Miami Hurricanes.


Alabama vs. Texas A&M had outstanding ratings from start to finish, but the ratings reached a fever pitch whenever the Aggies began their late charge to get the game within one touchdown in the fourth quarter.

It just goes to show the drawing power of the SEC and just how much interest the public has in the back-to-back defending national champions and Johnny Football, so college football can only hope that these two teams will be able to get to the top of the rankings and have a grudge match for the national championship.

The records for that game would be off the charts.

i would expect for viewership to be UP over 23 years, and really- what other good games were on at 3:30 Saturday? FSU-Nevada does not qualify. If anything, I'm surprised Bama-TAMU did not beat the ND-UM game from 23 years ago.

I am disappoint

Didn't have the proliferation of channels and available games in 1990. So this is pretty impressive, especially for a non-championship game.
