Maybe we’re tuning in for the bad officiating:
CBS’ SEC college football games are so far averaging 4% of U.S. TV households, compared to 3.9% for ABC games. Since CBS resumed airing college football in 1996, this is the first time the network’s ratings have topped ABC’s this late in the season…
Seriously, that’s impressive, considering that this has been a down year in the SEC and that both division races are wrapped up.
Meanwhile, what’s gotten into the water in Bristol, Connecticut?
… ESPN is the worldwide leader in hype. But its College GameDay show, which each Saturday is staged from big-game sites, is straying from the playbook. The show will be at Texas Christian — which hosts Utah on the CBS College Sports Network Saturday (7:30 p.m. ET) — in what will be its fourth stop this season at a campus not hosting an ESPN/ABC game.
