Chick-fil-A & Outback Bowls: First & Fourth Most-Viewed Non-BCS Bowls on ESPN Ever

As the 2012 season nears its conclusion, ESPN posted two of its top four most-viewed non-BCS bowl games ever with the Chick-fil-A and Outback Bowls over consecutive days. The New Year's Eve telecast of the Chick-fil-A Bowl, No. 14 Clemson defeating No. 8 LSU 25-24, averaged 8,557,000 viewers on a 5.6 household coverage rating, making it the network's most-viewed non-BCS bowl ever. The New Year's Day Outback Bowl, No. 10 South Carolina beating No. 18 Michigan 33-28, is ESPN's fourth most-viewed non-BCS bowl ever with an average of 7,583,000 viewers on a 4.9 household coverage rating.

In addition, this season's action has produced ESPN's 14th most-viewed non-BCS bowl game telecast with the Valero Alamo Bowl. The December 29 matchup, No. 23 Texas upending No. 13 Oregon State 31-27, averaged 6,757,000 viewers on a 4.8 rating.

ESPN's extensive post-season action will conclude with three games over three straight days highlighted by the season-ending Discover BCS National Championship (Monday, Jan. 7, at 8:30 p.m. ET) between No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama. ESPN, ESPN Radio, ESPN Deportes and WatchESPN will present the action, as will ESPN 3D.
