LSU-Alabama Lowest Rated BCS Title Game Ever
It may have been an attractive matchup here in SEC country, but last night’s LSU-Alabama rematch for the BCS title was the least watched BCS title game ever.
The overnight rating for the game was a 13.8, meaning 13.8 percent of households were tuned into the contest. The previous low was 14.3 when Miami met Nebraska in 2002.
The game also was off 14% from last year’s Auburn/Oregon game and down 24% from Texas-Alabama two years ago.
The game did slightly better than the regular season matchup on CBS, which drew an 11.9.
The two teams played on November 5th in a game where neither team scored a touchdown. That was the same scenario last night until Trent Richardson’s 30 yard TD run in the fourth quarter.
