Share This Post

As we get close and closer to the beginning of the college football season the litany of preseason watch-lists, team previews and so on grows ever longer.  But those should come later.  Right now with SEC Media Days in full swing, the topic here at Lazy Fan is TV ratings.  So far we’ve taken a look at the TV ratings for every SEC team, as well as the 15 least watched games of 2017.  It’s only natural that after covering the least watched games that we give you the most watched games.  So without further ado, here are the 15 most watched college football games of 2017.  Games will be ranked from lowest number of viewers to highest 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.
