    College Football Playoff (and BCS) Ratings History

    Major college football bowl ratings dating back to the start of the BCS. College Football Playoff ratings information includes streaming viewership where available.

    Since the start of the BCS in 1999, no game has had a higher rating or more viewers than the 2006 Rose Bowl. The thrilling national championship between Texas and USC had a 21.7 rating and 35.6 million viewers. Second on that list if the first national championship of the CFP era, Ohio State-Oregon in 2015 (18.6, 34.1M).

    SMW’s complete college football ratings chart, which includes all regular season games dating back to 2012, is available here.

    CFP/BCS: Orange: 6.65/8.80962 = .7549
    CFP/BCS: Fiesta: 6.425/9.35625 = .6867
    Each one of those bowl pairings did better with BCS, than with CFP.

    Cumulative: 33.525/40.75337 = .8226 (CFP is effectively 82.3% as effective as BCS).
    That's nearly a 20 point disparity, but I'll round down, I'll say it's "only" 18 points lower.

    Cotton/Peach: 5.8 + 5.6 = 11.4 / 2 = 5.7 (net). BCS (N/A).

    The only game I see getting a higher rating (yield) is the CFP NC, and that's by a miniscule. IN fact, I suspect if I include EVERY BCS championship (NC) that goes to zero. CFP is thererfore (at best) only as good as the BCS was, and isn't better any any respect at ALL.

    O.K. found it. I will try to keep this updated. this is for questions relative to the ratings (televison) particular to BCS and/or CFP. I hope people find it amusing. @Oaktown this was what I was referencing before you asked me.
