The SEC reigned supreme once again, bringing in the most viewers of any college football game on any network last Saturday according to CBS.

Over 5 million is a significant number given how poorly both teams played throughout the game. Neither team was over 50 percent on third down while the Gators and Volunteers also combined for six turnovers. Tennessee only made 2 of its 5 field goal attempts.
None of it seemed to matter though as the teams rewarded viewers with the most exciting finish to a college football game this season to date. Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks chucked a hail mary that landed in the hands of Tyrie Cleveland to give the Gators a win they won’t soon forget.
