College Football Week 5: ABC Televises Two Highest-Rated Games of the Day; No. 1 Ohio State Delivers for WatchESPN; College GameDay Earns Highest-Rating Since 2013, Record-Setter on WatchESPN

Week 5 of the college football season saw ABC televise the two-highest rated games of the day -- Saturday Night Football (No. 6 Notre Dame at No. 12 Clemson) which earned a 4.8 overnight, and 3:30 p.m. ET regional action (No. 1 Ohio State at Indiana and Texas Tech at No. 5 Baylor), which earned a 4.5 overnight. Notre Dame's trip to Clemson's Death Valley was the third-highest overnight of the 2015 season across all networks and up 71% compared to 2014 Week 5 Saturday Night Football (Notre Dame at Syracuse). On WatchESPN, the Buckeyes-Hoosiers matchup was the most-streamed game of the day, attracting an additional 82,000 average minute impressions to the TV audience, 422,000 unique viewers and 19,600,000 live minutes viewed. Additionally, on WatchESPN, the regionalized 3:30 p.m. ABC window was up 66% in average minute impressions (97,000), 51% in unique viewers (528,000) and 60% in live minutes viewed (23,200,000) compared to last season's similar regionalized window.

College GameDay Scores Big Overnight Rating, Sets Record on WatchESPN

College GameDay (from Clemson) earned a 1.6 overnight rating, the show's highest overnight since Nov 30, 2013, (from Auburn) and up 45% compared to 2014 Week 5 (from South Carolina). Additionally, yesterday's show was the best ever on WatchESPN across all major metrics: 46,000 average minute impressions, 196,000 unique viewers, and 8,200,000 live minutes viewed.

**NOTE: WatchESPN data is preliminary and subject to change after further processing. Both television and WatchESPN final numbers will be available this week.
