15 Least Watched College Football Games of 2017

College football is inching ever closer.  Yesterday, SEC Media Days got underway and every year it feels like SEC Media Days is the unofficial start to fall camp and the beginning of the college football season.  Yesterday we ran a piece about the TV ratings for every SEC team in 2017 (what better way to kick off a week of SEC people hobnobbing it with the media).  In keeping with the TV ratings theme, it’s now time to take a look at the 15 least watched games from the 2017 season.  Games will be ranked from highest number of viewers to lowest number of viewers.  Please note that games that aired on the SEC Network, the B1G Network, the Pac-12 Network, ESPNNEWS, or CBSSN are not included as they are not tracked by Nielsen and numbers are therefore unavailable.
