SEC ON CBS’ Coverage of Alabama-Arkansas Scores Network’s Best Ratings for Afternoon Football Since 2003

Season-to-Date Ratings Best in 11 Years

CBS Sports’ coverage of the SEC ON CBS on Saturday, Sept. 25, which saw No. 1-seeded Alabama’s beat No. 10-seeded Arkansas, earned an preliminary national rating/share of 5.2/12, up 117% from last year’s 2.4/6 (Arkansas-No. 3-ranked Alabama).

The 5.2/12 was the highest rating for a regular-season afternoon college football game on CBS (excluding the SEC Championship games) since a 5.7/13 on 11/29/03 for No. 9 Florida State at No. 11 Florida.
