Didn’t see this discussed anywhere, but I apologize if I missed it:
UH-Cincy game drew a 6.7 locally…up against an NFL game on a Thursday night. This would be higher than any game on ESPN last year (highest was Baylor-TCU - 6.5).
UH also was watched by 2.16M nationally which was higher than Clemson-Louisville on the same Thursday last year (1.9M). Also the most watched Thursday/Friday game and 5th most watched ESPN game this year. Viewership also would have been the 6th highest Thurs/Fri game last year.
