Overnight Ratings: Michigan's OT Win Over Indiana On ABC Leads CFB Week 7

ESPN/ABC had the four highest-rated college football games over the weekend, led by Michigan's OT win over Indiana in the noon ET window. That game earned a 2.9 overnight rating on ABC, marking the highest-rated CFB game of the week across cable and broadcast, and also tying the highest-rated CFB game of the season in that window. ABC also earned a 2.5 overnight for Miami's last-minute win over Georgia Tech in the 3:30pm window, while ESPN drew a 2.4 in that timeslot for Oklahoma-Texas, the second- and third-highest-rated games of the weekend. CBS drew a 2.2 overnight on Saturday afternoon for LSU's comeback win over Auburn. The game in that window last year (Alabama-Tennessee) drew a 4.1 overnight.
