I guess that proves which teams were the reason for higher ratings in the semifinal games.

Surprising given the size of their fan and alum base

Makes you wonder if the relative stat would be the same

Had any other two teams played.

Plenty of interest on the OSU side to prove they are relevant. It’s also a big game for the Saban crowd (#7 overall).

A blow out will do that

If it were a tight game, then the end ratings would have been respectable imho.

I don't think so, like I've said, most fans were turned off by the way OcryO got in the playoffs!!!

IMPO, I think that was bc most FB fans didn't like the way OcryO got into the playoffs with a 6 game season, and the rules being changed only to get them in the playoffs ahead of other more deserving teams that players risk their health for much longer than OcryO, and they couldn't care less about watching them play for free on TV. I didn't watch the game, and I absolutely love college FB. I checked in a few times just to see how bad Bama was beating them, but I didn't watch a full series in that entire game!!!

With all due respect, I hated the way OSU got in but at the end of the day thought they were one of the 4 best.

I still watched. Somehow I manned up this time. Refused to watch the SEC championship game between UGA and Bama though. Thus, I did not.

Were they a top 4?

Probably.

But did they prove they deserved to be there? Do we start giving out playoff passes at 6-0 from now on?

Shoot I watched every second of that beautiful blowout! Only thing that would have been better is if Clemson would have blown them out instead. I think I have 3 favorite teams.
1. Clemson
2. Whoever is playing u of 6c
3. Whoever is playing ocryo state
