Liberty-Georgia Southern and Wyoming-Georgia State were on CBSSN and are not rated.
Per the top 10 thread, top game in the regular season had 16.64 million viewers. All of the top 10 exceeded the Cotton Bowls 6.22. However, that would probably be top 20.

Thanks for doing the work.
I know the time slots can make or break ratings, but even so it's still a surprise to see EMU-Pitt up there.

There was Zero competition that night tv wise. It was a bad, bad tv night. It was like the only thing on.

It was a good game
Note that Alabama-Michigan was #4, ahead of 3 NY6 games.
#8 was Texas-Utah, #9 Texas A&M-Oklahoma St., #10 Notre Dame-Iowa St. and #11 the other NYD game-Auburn-Minnesota.

Vikings-Saints 29.9 million

Am I not seeing it, or is the Cincnnati-Boston College Birmingham Bowl not listed?

It was worth it if only to see the EMU coaches wearing their mechanics coveralls.

EMU draws the JiffyLube demographic
People probably though their mascot was an emu so they tuned in to see it.

They only had to January 1 listed.
Updated through January 4. Only TN-IU was in the top 2/3 of games.

Auburn / Minnesota would have been more highly rated but it was going head to head with Michigan / Alabama which admittedly was a much more compelling match up. That's the problem with viewing numbers in the noon slot on New Year's day. Right now 3 bowls are played in that time slot.

ND/Iowa State went up against Memphis/Penn State as well, I believe.
Gotta give it up to Pitt- EMU. Surprised to see that game at #16 (1.8).
Pitt-EMU was a competitive game till the end and the nice crowd added to the aesthetics on TV. It looked and felt like a big time game when you were watching it. Hate it ended the way it did.
