Nearly nine million people watched the Georgia Bulldogs beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 23-17 on Saturday night.

8.91 million people watched the dogfight between the two traditional powers on CBS, according to TVByTheNumbers.

The network also announced that it was the most watched game on CBS since 2013, when Alabama and Texas A&M played, according to Saturday Down South. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

My friends, those are some huge numbers and there’s no other way to put it. To put it in perspective, the most watched show of the night that wasn’t football was “Dateline” on NBC, and that only got 2.92 million viewers, according to the same TVByTheNumbers report.

As I always say, it’s a great sign for America whenever people are tuning in for some college football. It’s a sign that we haven’t lost our minds just yet.

As long as this country is still watching football, then we’re going to be just fine. College football is truly the backbone of this nation, and the fact that nearly nine million peopled watched Georgia/Notre Dame is a solid sign that won’t be changing anytime soon.

People just love their football!
