Boston College-Miami TV Ratings Season Low For ABC

What do you get when you put a 3-8 Boston College team against a bowl ineligible 6-5 Miami team on ABC the day after Thanksgiving? The network's lowest rated college football telecast of the season, of course.

"ABC's top game of the season was the November 19 edition of Saturday Night Football, featuring either USC/#4 Oregon or #5 Oklahoma/#22 Baylor (6.1, 9.744M). The network's season low came less than a week later, with the November 25 tilt between Boston College and Miami (1.4, 2.103M)."

In fairness to the Eagles and Hurricanes, the game, along with Iowa-Nebraska at noon that day, was the network's lone Friday afternoon college football broadcast. BC-Miami was also one of the few games nationally televised in the 3:30 PM slot for ABC, joining Alabama-Penn State (Sep. 10, 3.9, 6.083M), Oklahoma State-Texas (Oct. 15, 3.8, 5.587M) and Texas-Baylor (Dec. 3, 2.3, 3.259M).

Still, you have to figure that if the two programs had kept the game on Saturday that a few more viewers would have tuned in, right?
