Pretty interesting article on the Bowl Ratings
If anything, it shows bowls are going away anytime soon.

RE: Pretty interesting article on the Bowl Ratings
Ive always found it surprising no other networks seem interested in getting in on the bowl games. Big audience and no worries about the stars walking off the set.

I remember the NBC had the Gator like CBS has the Sun. Have no idea if NBC wants back in but making a play for the Gator or another similar bowl would be worth the investment.

Didn't surprise me. The Peach was the relegation bowl, the G5 rep vs a 3-loss and utterly demoralized Auburn team. Turned out to be a fun game but who woulda guessed?

In contrast, the Citrus featured two top-brand blue-bloods, Notre Dame and LSU. That figured to draw more viewers.

What it proves is that the SEC should be making more money. The Big 10 is healthy too. And the ACC, other than Clemson in the post season was really nowhere to be found. They did crack the regular season top 5 with Alabama vs F.S.U..

Except, you know, that ACC teams were involved in the highest-rated non playoff bowl, the largest audience in a NY6 bowl, and 3 out of the next 4 most watched bowls that didn't have a SEC or B1G opponent.

What did that get you? They don't give out parting gifts like on game shows. The key words are, "that didn't have a SEC

or B1G opponent" and I hope you aren't counting Notre Dame here. Their football team isn't ACC. I didn't see what the Louisville vs Miss State drew. And that N.C. State game drew 3 million?

Surprising the Citrus outdrew the Peach.
Interesting on value of regular season vs. bowls:

"...1. (1) Alabama at (6) Auburn – Saturday, Nov. 25 on CBS – 13.66 million viewers.
Overall, only three bowl games outdrew the top regular-season game in viewership – and those were all associated with the CFP bracket (the Sugar and Rose semi-finals and the National Championship game). In other words, no non-bracket bowl game attracted more viewers than did Alabama at Auburn in Week 13. And, rather than being literally the only game on TV, the Iron Bowl was one of 43 games played that Saturday.
Of the three teams mentioned twice in the top five of regular-season viewership, two drew in more viewers in their regular-season highs than during bowl season:
Ohio State had 9.468 million tune in to its Cotton Bowl appearance vs. USC. Compare that to the 10.15 million it drew at Michigan and the 12.92 it garnered in the Big Ten title game vs. Wisconsin.
Auburn had 8.377 million viewers watch its Peach Bowl appearance vs. UCF (the least viewed of the six rotating CFP bowl games). Compare that to the 13.47 million who tuned in for the SEC title game vs. Georgia and the 13.66 million who watched the Iron Bowl vs. Alabama...."

You'll never agree, but that deal Slive made signing away SEC rights to ESPN ten years ago is the albatross that will keep on dragging the SEC, and thanks to the SECN deal, will do so at least for the next 17 years.

Had Slive not signed that deal and instead followed Delany's model, the SEC would probably be making $50m to $60m a year per team instead of $40m.

No matter how much gobs of money the SECN brings in, it will always should have been considerably more.

The author seems to think his numbers denigrate the bowls, but in fact they show how important they are. E.g., the discussion of Auburn makes the Peach look bad, but it was still the 3rd-highest rated game Auburn played all last year, and they draw good ratings. The Peach even beat out the first Auburn - Georgia game.

And for UCF, it surely was far and away their most-watched game. Heck, all the other games UCF played put together drew about 9.5 million viewers. The Peach did 8.3 million by itself.

The article shows what a BOON these bowl games are exposure-wise for the G5 teams. E.g., Troy's bowl game drew 1.3 million viewers, more than double the viewers for any other game, except for LSU vs Troy, and it even beat that game by 500k viewers.

These bowl games, even the rinky-dink ones, are nice exposure for the G5.
