I had started a similar thread tracking games over 5 million viewers. I have a feeling there will be over 10 games over 10 million this season.

5 over 7 million at this point is really good.

going back to 2019, #10 was 7.71 Million. Georgia/Clemson would have been #8 in 2019.

Good stuff.

Any of my fellow college football stats nerds have a record of the highest TV ratings for a G5 vs G5 regular-season matchup (not including Army, Navy or Air Force)?

Maybe the "War on I-4" in 2017 when UCF and USF were playing for the AAC East title (I'm a Floridian, so that's why that particular game comes to mind)?

You don’t have that captivating player like Teblow or Burrow. Until we get that player, ratings will plateau here. Also Bama fatigue. But ratings should top out with UGa vs Bama 12-0 vs 12-0. Although if both schools clinch a CFP spot before going into Atlanta it may be a moot point. Ohio St Iowa 11-1 vs 12-0 will also do a big rating. PSU Iowa this week will do a number.

Will be interesting to see the number for Alabama/A&M. Could have been much larger obviously.

Will be interesting to see how Penn St/Iowa does against Georgia/Auburn- which starts 30 minutes earlier.

The year though is off to a great start compared to normal. I mean 2019 right now we only had 2 games that had more than 7 million viewers. We have 5 right now.

Also, I still think there is a lingering virus effect.

I think the ratings are doing pretty well. Just last week wasn't exactly a great slate of games names wise- and only 1 game really was a good one on the field. Will be really interesting like I said to see this week.

The Cincinnati-Notre Dame game drew 3.805M, pretty good for that dreaded 02:30 EST slot. That rating was the best ND rating for that slot in five years, with the exception of ND-Duke last year which was a fluke COVID rating because everything else was basically cancelled.

UC-ND also went up against Michigan-Wisconsin (noon), Alabama-Ole Miss and Arkansas Georgia. These four games were 4 of the top 5 viewed games of the week. They basically cannibalized each other so there was no one or two monster rating.

FWIW, I thought it was a great slate of games. I had four screens going all day and sometimes I felt I needed more. Georgia vs Arkansas, Alabama vs Ole Miss, LSU vs Auburn, Oregon vs Stanford, Michigan vs Wisconsin, Notre Dame vs Cincy.

What was missing was the drama amongst the biggest games. Alabama vs Ole Miss and Georgia vs Arkansas were instant blowouts, and that seems to dampen ratings considerably.

some great matchups- but like Georgia/Arkansas, Alabama/Ole Miss, Notre Dame/Cincy not matchups with 2 name teams. LSU/Auburn was a 9pm et start so that hurts. Michigan/Wisconsin wasn't a great game. Oregon/Stanford was- but not exactly was expected to be a great game.

It's nothing like this weekend. Georgia/Auburn. Iowa/Penn St(ok not really 2 big name teams, but 2 top 5 teams). Oklahoma/Texas. I'd guess at least 2 of those will be on the top 10 after this weekend, if not all 3.

Interesting article on week 5: https://www.sportsmediawatch.com/2021/10...iewership/

"...Ranking second for the weekend, Michigan-Wisconsin drew a 2.5 and 4.31 million in the FOX “Big Noon Saturday” window — up 56% in ratings and 60% in viewership from TCU-Texas last year (1.6, 2.70M) and up 32% and 53% respectively from 2019 (Texas Tech-Oklahoma: 1.9, 2.81M). The Wolverines’ win outdrew ESPN’s competing Arkansas-Georgia game, the site of College Gameday (2.2, 3.85M). The FOX “Big Noon” game has won its timeslot in all five weeks this season.

FOX also drew a 1.5 and 2.62 million for Oklahoma-Kansas State later in the day, up 14% and 29% respectively from 2019 (USC-Washington: 1.3, 2.03M). The network is now averaging 4.03 million season-to-date, up 32% from 2019 (3.04M) and its best start to a season on record.

ESPN/ABC took the third and fourth-place spots. ABC’s Indiana-Penn State primetime game averaged a 2.3 and 4.00 million, up 8% from last year (Oklahoma-Iowa State: 2.1, 3.71M) but down 35% from 2019 (Ohio State-Nebraska: 3.5, 6.14M).

ESPN’s previously-mentioned Arkansas-Georgia game delivered a cable season-high 2.2 (+44%) and 3.85 million (+52%), its largest audience for a Noon ET game since 2016. ESPN ended up with the top two cable audiences of the season Saturday, its primetime Auburn-LSU game close behind at a 2.2 and 3.79 million — flat in ratings and down 10% in viewership from Auburn-Georgia last year (2.2, 4.22M).

Returning to broadcast, Cincinnati’s upset of Notre Dame ranked fifth for the weekend with a 2.2 and 3.81 million on NBC. Notre Dame’s second NBC game last season, a primetime matchup against Florida State, had a 1.6 and 2.92 million...."

Don't think anything gets added this weekend. Maybe Kentucky/Georgia if it's close early.
