I’m not surprised at all that Ohio State’s game against Indiana put up big numbers on Fox last Saturday. Not surprised one bit.

The matchup against the Hoosiers was viewed as the only real regular season test for OSU. They won, but it was a dogfight down the stretch.

Seeing as how the weekend was loaded with amazing matchups, it makes sense why the game between two top-10 teams was the most-watched.

As I always say, it’s a great sign for America when college football is putting up big numbers. It’s a sign that things are trending up. Shoutout to OSU for the great win and to Indiana for giving the Buckeyes all they could handle.
