ESPN’s coverage of the Stanford vs. Washington NCAA football game raked in the top spot in Friday’s cable ratings, scoring a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 for the network. It was the only program of the night to break the 1.0 barrier, as a number of “Family Guy,” “Bob’s Burgers,” and “American Dad” reruns followed behind with 0.7s to 0.5s.

A late-night edition of “SportsCenter” grabbed a 0.5  for ESPN in the night as well, while Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show” continued to maintain its 0.5 streak on the network.
