I did some research on TV ratings for 2013 season. Some very interesting insight on the ND/UM Game. Last year this game was 5th in overall viewership. I wonder why ND thinks this game is NOT national. ND had an average of 3.92 million viewers per game.
Here are the top 5 games nationally:
1) Bama / Auburn
2) Bama / Texas A&M
3) Bama / LSU
4) The Game
5) Michigan / ND
Also it was reported in a previous post that Michigan was 2nd in team ratings (6.18 million viewers per televised game). Bama was #1.
On another note: Michigan State averaged 2.28 million viewers. This is a bitch-slap in the face of the players who worked so very hard to win the Big Ten Championship. It just goes to prove that no one really cares about MSU. I almost feel bad for the players....almost.
