Saturday Final Nationals: Fox Tops NBC and ABC Time College Football Coverage

Fox won a rare Saturday prime time with the college football matchup of Ohio State-Oklahoma. The game more than doubled the audience of the Pac-12 matchup, USC-Stanford, which aired on ABC, the network that usually wins Saturday night with college football.

The two most-watched college football games of the day was on CBS in the late afternoon, Alabama-Ole Miss (8.17 million viewers), and on ABC at noon, Florida State-Louisville (6.22 million viewers).
