ESPN ruled the cable ratings per usual on Saturday, with a pair of afternoon college football games (Michigan State-Ohio State and Indiana-Michigan) scoring the top spots in both adults 18-49 (1.6 and 1.4 ratings, respectively) and total viewers (5.84 million and 4.77 million).

The top non-sports original program was Hallmark Channel’s movie “My Christmas Dream.” It drew a 0.7 in the 18-49 demo and 4.45 million viewers, an improvement on the previous week’s original movie.
