With Nearly 13 Million Viewers, No. 8 Ohio State's Win Over No. 4 Wisconsin is FOX's Top College Football Game Since 2013

No. 3 Oklahoma's Victory Over No. 11 TCU Pulls in Almost 6 Million, Projecting to Give FOX Yesterday's Top Early Game

No. 8 Ohio State captured its 36th Big Ten title in thrilling fashion with a 27-21 victory over fourth-ranked and previously undefeated Wisconsin Saturday night, powering FOX to what is projected to be a big win in prime time. The game drew 12,919,000 viewers on the FOX broadcast network, according to Nielsen Fast Nationals, ranking as the network's most-watched college football game since the 2013 Big Ten Championship.

The 2017 Big Ten Championship Game is the most-watched Big Ten Championship Game since the Buckeyes faced Michigan State in 2013 (13,900,000) and is FOX's most-watched primetime telecast of any kind since Game 7 of this year's World Series. This year's Big Ten title contest drew a combined 13,050,000 viewers on the FOX broadcast network and FOX Sports GO with an average minute audience of 131,0161 on FOX Sports GO. The 2017 Big Ten Championship Game is now the streaming service's biggest college football event ever, surpassing the average minute audience of 107,983 set during Penn State at Ohio State earlier this season.

Earlier in the day, No. 3 Oklahoma punched its ticket to the College Football Playoff with a convincing win over No. 11 TCU in the first Big 12 Championship Game since 2010 and the first ever to air on FOX. The game delivered 5,901,000 viewers on the broadcast network and projects to be the most-watched game of yesterday's 12:00 PM ET window. Overall, a combined 5,980,000 viewers watched the Big 12 Championship Game on FOX and FOX Sports GO, with an average minute audience of 79,373 on the streaming service. The game is the best-performing Big 12 game in FOX Sports GO history and its fourth-best college football event ever.
