via press release:

ESPN/ABC continued the momentum of college football’s opening week by televising the four highest-rated games – across all networks — on Saturday, based on overnights. ABC Saturday Night Football featuring No. 7 Oregon at No. 5 Michigan State (8 p.m. ET) led the way, achieving a 5.0 overnight rating, followed by No. 9 Notre Dame at Virginia’s  3.9 overnight (3:30 p.m. on ABC) and Oregon State at Michigan‘s 3.2 (Noon on ABC).

 

No. 19 Oklahoma at No. 23 Tennessee (2.6 overnight) was ESPN’s highest-rated game of the day and college football’s fourth highest-game overall – across all networks. The Sooners’ overtime victory was up 271% to the comparable window in 2014 (Week 2: Ole Miss vs. Vanderbilt)
