The No. 2 team in the country, Ohio State, lost in incredible fashion on Saturday night. And more people tuned in to watch Alabama take down Texas A&M.
Per @SportsTVRatings, Alabama’s 33-14 win over Texas A&M drew a rating of 5.4, edging out Ohio State-Penn State and Wisconsin Iowa. But not even another dominant Alabama performance could top the Chicago Cubs clinching their first World Series appearance since 1945. The Cubs game six win over the Dodgers drew a 6.3 rating.
Saturday overnight ratings (updated):
Alabama-Texas A&M: 5.4
