Ohio State's Win Over Michigan Was Fox's Top-Rated College Football Game of the Season

Chris Olave and the Buckeyes did big things on the field and for Fox this weekend.

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.

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.
