Alabama losing to Texas A&M 41-38 put up some big TV ratings.

According to TVSeriesFinale.com, the gigantic upset victory for the Aggies averaged 7.03 million viewers on CBS in the early data. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The final number will be higher because it was a live sporting event.

I’ll be very interested to see what the final number is for the game. With the early number being north of seven million, I’m guessing the final number could be more than an average of nine million viewers.

Once that game got into the fourth quarter, I’m pretty sure just about every college football fan in the country was watching as the Aggies put down the Crimson Tide.

Whenever Alabama is playing, you know people are going to pay attention. That’s just a fact. They’re arguably the biggest brand in all of college sports. On their worst day, they’re still in the top three.

The fact A&M was unranked probably resulted in not as many people watching as if the Aggies had been in the top 10, but the numbers were still huge.

It’s always a great thing whenever people in America are watching college football, and anyone who argues otherwise should be ignored.

The Aggies/Crimson Tide game was pure electricity, and the USA loved it!
