The fans in Louisville were psyched for Thursday's matchup between the Florida State Seminoles and Louisville Cardinals. As it appears, so was the national television audience watching it on ESPN.

Per Jeff Greer of The Courier-Journal, "the 42-31 FSU win drew a 3.5 overnight rating for ESPN, the network announced on Friday morning. That's the highest overnight rating for a college football game on ESPN this season."

In fact, Thursday's game marks the ninth-highest overnight rating for an ESPN Thursday night college football game since 2000.

Furthermore, the game average 74,000 viewers a minute on ESPN's live-streaming app, WatchESPN, and had 366,000 unique viewers overall. That's the second-largest audience ever for the app when it comes to a regular-season college football game.

All in all, it looks like the Seminoles (and the underdogs that try to dethrone them) have become one of college football's most intriguing draws.
