National Football Foundation releases viewing and rating data from 2017-18 college football season

As TV broadcasting schedules are being drawn up for the 2018 college football season, the viewership numbers from last year are now being released.

In a statement by the National Football Foundation, the most viewed game last season was, unsurprisingly, the College Football Playoff National Championship Game between Alabama-Georgia. The overtime thriller that saw the Crimson Tide take home the trophy brought in 29,932,000 viewers. However, the Ohio State-Oregon title game of 2015 still holds the title of most viewed college football game; the Buckeyes-Ducks showdown in Dallas captivated an audience of 33,395,000 viewers.

While the Scarlet and Gray didn’t have the most viewed game last season, they made up for it with fan attendance.
