Rose Bowl draws huge viewerships

January 6, 2006


— Texas' last-minute victory over Southern California in the Rose Bowl drew the highest rating for a college football game in 19 years.

ABC Sports' broadcast of Texas' 41-38 victory Wednesday night got a 21.7 rating, a 59 percent increase from the 13.7 for USC's victory over Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl in last year's Bowl Championship Series national title game.

The Rose Bowl drew the highest rating since the 25.1 for Penn State's victory over Miami in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 2, 1987.
