LSU-Syracuse draws best TV ratings on ESPN last weekend
Everyone wants to get a look at LSU running back Leonard Fournette. LSU’s non-conference win against Syracuse garnered the best television ratings on ESPN last weekend, according to NOLA.com’s Jim Kleinpeter. The Tigers took on the Orange at noon (central time) and outdrew each of ESPN’s primetime matchups.
Kleinpeter said more than 3.2 million people watched the game on television. ESPN’s streaming site, WatchESPN, drew 359,000 unique visitors. Fournette put on a show for the viewers, running for 244 yards and two touchdowns in the Tigers’ 34-24 victory.
LSU may not draw as many viewers this weekend, as the Tigers play host to Eastern Michigan at 7 p.m. CT on Saturday. The game will be televised on ESPNU.
