The #8 Buckeyes’ 26-17 victory over the #7 Ducks drew a 13.8 overnight rating on ABC Friday evening, up 10 percent from a 12.6 for last year’s USC-Penn St. battle, and up 15 percent from a 12.0 for the USC-Illinois tilt in 2008.

Per Nielsen overnights, ABC’s New Year’s Day audience peaked at 8 p.m., as the Grandaddy of Them All delivered a 5.8 share/16 rating and just shy of 20 million viewers.

The overnight is the highest for a Rose Bowl since USC and Michigan drew a 14.5 on Jan. 1, 2007.
