2017 SEC College Football TV Ratings

Share This Post

We’re in the dog days of summer now and college football is on everyone’s mind.  The World Cup is over, baseball is at the All-Star Break and college football is still over two months away.  But SEC Media Days kick off in Atlanta this week which gives hope to thousands of fans that the season might just get here faster than expected.  With SEC Media Days getting underway, here’s a look at how all of the SEC teams fared in the all-important TV ratings race last season.

Teams will be listed in alphabetical order and games will be listed in chronological order.  Please note that games that aired on the SEC Network are not included as that particular channel is not tracked by Nielsen and numbers are therefore unavailable.  Also, please note that since all of these teams are in the SEC they play almost everybody else meaning there will be some overlap.
