Overnight Ratings: NBC Ties All-Time Notre Dame Low For Game Against Navy

NBC earned a 1.2 overnight Nielsen rating for its Navy-Notre Dame football telecast on Saturday. It is tied with the Air Force-Notre Dame game on Oct. 8 for the lowest Notre Dame football overnight ever on NBC. ABC led all weekend college football with a 5.4 overnight for its regionalized "Saturday Night Football," which featured Stanford's triple OT win over USC and Georgia Tech's upset win over Clemson. That rating is up slightly from a 5.3 overnight for regionalized coverage in the window last year. CBS' Georgia-Florida earned a 3.6 overnight, up slightly from a 3.5 rating for the game last year. The chart below lists overnight Nielsen ratings from weekend sports telecasts on broadcast TV.
