The Game delivered once again.
The best rivalry in college football has yet again lived up to the hype. While it wasn't all that close on the field, FOX reports that Ohio State's beatdown of the Wolverines set a new rating record for the network.
Last week's victory over Penn State was the previous season's best for the network, but this year's edition of The Game has taken over the top spot.
FOX College Footballs coverage of top-ranked Ohio States win over Michigan checks in as the highest-rated event of the day, the networks top-rated college football game this season and pulls in BIG NOON KICKOFFs best rating ever pic.twitter.com/rxEbm6NBzm— FOX Sports PR (@FOXSportsPR) December 1, 2019
According to a release by the network, the game's 7.5 metered market rating made it the top event of the day and the network's top college football game of the season. Additionally, it was the second-highest-rated college football game on any network this season (LSU's 46-41 win over Alabama remains the highest-rated game of the year).
Fox's Big Noon Kickoff pregame show also continues to do quite well. Yesterday, the show recorded a new best-ever rating as Urban Meyer and the crew made the trip to Ann Arbor.
The Buckeyes will meet Wisconsin next Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis. That game will also be broadcast on Fox.
