Boise State 33, Virginia Tech 30: A Whole Lot of People Saw Us Lose

Virginia Tech's game against Boise State Monday was the most-viewed college football game in ESPN's history, according to a release from the network:

The Labor Day matchup averaged a 7.3 rating (equaling the average for USC at Ohio State) and stands as the highest rating for a college football game in 16 years (Florida State at Miami averaged a 7.7 on October 8, 1994).

While we beat the Ohio State-USC game in households with 7,252,000, that game had more total viewers with over 10.5 million to our measly 9.8+ million. It was also the highest-rated program regardless of network on Monday. Yeah, we lost, but a ton of people (and presumably recruits) watched us. Whether or not you consider that a good thing is up to you.
