·1 min read

Last Saturday’s battle between Alabama and Florida did not disappoint. It started off with Alabama completely dominating the Gators as they jumped out to a 21-3 lead. But the Gatos came roaring back to deliver a nail-biting finishing in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. No. 1 Alabama survived the comeback winning 31-29.

Not only did the teams deliver, but so did college football fans. In a press release by CBS it was reported that Alabama and Florida was the most-watched “SEC ON CBS” opener in 8 years, averaging 7.863 million viewers. This number is up 76% from last season’s opener.

This was the most-watched “SEC ON CBS” opener since Alabama and Texas A&M faced off back in 2013. That contest averaged a whopping 13.586 million viewers.
