ESPN College Football: ABC Airs Most-Watched November Saturday Since 2016

· Most-Watched Week 12 Across ESPN Platforms Since 2015

· ESPN Wins the Night Among All Viewers and All Key Male and Adult Demos

· Multiple Superlatives in Every Window

· Six of the Top 10 Games of Week 12 on ESPN Platforms

In a weekend filled with upsets, top teams and thrillers, ESPN platforms came away the winner with ABC's most-watched November Saturday since 2016. ESPN platforms delivered the top three most-viewed games of the weekend and its most-watched Week 12 since 2015. ABC and ESPN won every window (noon, afternoon, primetime, late prime) on the penultimate Saturday of the 2022 regular season, and ESPN won the night as the most-viewed network in primetime among all viewers and all key male and adult demos.

ABC averaged 5.1 million viewers across its three windows, including 6.6 million viewers for No. 2 Ohio State at Maryland, which is ABC's most-watched game since Week 1 and the network's most-watched late afternoon game since 2017 (Michigan/Florida, Week 1). No. 21 Illinois at No. 3 Michigan goes down as ABC's most-watched noon game of the season and notched the highest peak audience of the day with 9.7 million viewers in the closing minutes of the Michigan victory. Despite the lopsided victory from Norman, Bedlam featuring Oklahoma State and Oklahoma registered 3.1 million viewers in primetime.

On ESPN, South Carolina's stunning victory over No. 5 Tennessee scored 4.9 million viewers, winning the primetime window and becoming ESPN's second most-watched game of the season and one of the top 10 most-watched games on the network in the past five years. In the late prime window, No. 13 Utah at No. 6 Oregon registered 2.5 million viewers, ESPN's most-watched Saturday game to kick off after 10 p.m. since 2015.
