The game one ratings drew a .5 (40,000 viewers) rating in the Cleveland market. This number is significant because the AU football telecast beat out Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN, ESPN-2,NASCAR on NBCSportschannel, and Cleveland TV stations WUAB and WBNX. The game two ratings grew even higher (.59) as the game broadcast out rated FS-1 (Major League Soccer), ESPN (MLB Sunday Night Baseball), ESPN-2 (Sportscenter) and TBS.
Tune in on Sunday nights to see AU shine. The Findlay game will be re-played on Sept.18 at 6 pm, while the Oct. 9 and Nov. 6 games against Northwood and Walsh will air at a time to be determined.
