- With most networks back in repeat mode and ABC airing a couple thrilling upsets (most of the country got USC's upset of Oregon and then the tail end of Baylor over Oklahoma), it was all about ABC on this evening as Saturday Night Football hit its highest regular season numbers in three years. The telecast built in a huge way throughout, and by far the biggest numbers came after primetime. (The only primetime half-hour rating above the full 3.4 average was the 3.5 at 10:30, while the other in-prime half-hours got just 2.4 -> 2.7 -> 2.7 -> 3.0.)
