FOX announces impressive viewership numbers through Week 3 of 2022 season
While many Nebraska fans may have turned off the tv during the Oklahoma blowout loss on Saturday, it still drew a pretty good crowd. FOX released the stats from the game, as well as the numbers through Week 3 so far.
Nebraska-Oklahoma had 3.4 million people watching on FOX. This is regardless of how the game ended. Nebraska lost its first game under interim head coach Mickey Joseph 49-14.
FOX also announced that Big Noon Saturday has been the most watched window in college football, bringing in an average of about 7.2 million viewers. This is an 18% increase from last season’s numbers.
Big Noon Kickoff has been doing well so far too. From 11 a.m-12 p.m. ET, it has 1.4 million viewers. This is also an increase from last season, and is up 16% from the previous 2021 numbers.
The next Big Noon Saturday game will be Maryland-Michigan in Week 4. We’ll see how the numbers from that game turn out. Both teams haven’t played a Power 5 school yet, but that doesn’t mean there should be some fireworks.
Maryland-Michigan kicks off Saturday at noon ET on FOX.
