All eyes were on USC-Ohio State

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

A lot of college football fans don't like USC, but they can't help but stare when the Trojans take the stage.

From the home office:

ESPN’s Saturday night telecast of USC defeating Ohio State 18-15 averaged 7,243,000 households, 10,586,000 total viewers and a 7.3 rating, making it the network’s most-viewed college football game -- covering both regular-season and bowl games. The telecast was the highest-rated program of the night among households, total viewers and in every key male and adult demographic, making ESPN the number one television network -- cable or broadcast -- for the evening. The 7.3 rating is the highest for a college football game -- regular-season and bowl games -- in 15 years (Florida State at Miami averaged a 7.7 on October 8, 1994).
