The Colorado Buffaloes have made a remarkable start to their season under head coach Deion Sanders, with a surprising 2-0 record. They kicked off their winning streak with an unexpected victory over the TCU Horned Frogs and followed it up with a win against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in their home opener.
The game against Nebraska lived up to its hype, attracting a lot of attention and even drawing in several celebrities. In terms of viewership, the game brought in an impressive 8.73 million viewers, making it the most-watched Pac-12 game on FOX and the 10th most-watched regular season game overall.
The game also saw significant streaming numbers, becoming the second most-streamed college football game in FOX’s history.
What’s even more noteworthy is that the game’s viewership was on par with the primetime Texas vs. Alabama matchup, which had 8.76 million viewers.
The Buffaloes’ upcoming game against the Colorado State Rams is also expected to be a success, as both FOX and ESPN will be broadcasting their pregame shows on-site.
ESPN will have the broadcast rights for that game.
