- Several BCS spots were on the line simultaneously on Saturday night. I didn't see the numbers for the ACC championship (they were outside of the weekly Cable Top 25, which means less than 3.565 million viewers), but on broadcast it was the Big 10 Championship game soundly beating the de facto Big 12 Championship. An interesting note from these two games is that the Oklahoma State/Oklahoma matchup actually started bigger (2.2 for ABC at 8:30 vs. 2.0 for Fox), but the blowout sent viewers fleeing over to another Wisconsin/Michigan State classic.
