This week, the Capital One Orange Bowl and Goodyear Cotton Bowl games took two of the top three spots on our list, which means lots of Slingbox fans tuned into the two games that made up this year’s College Football Playoff semifinals, In the Orange Bowl, the Clemson Tigers defeated the Oklahoma Sooners 37-17 and the Alabama Crimson Tide shutout the Michigan State Spartans, ultimately winning the Cotton Bowl 38-0.
Both games were played on New Year’s Eve, which was a controversial scheduling decision as many people typically have other plans for the holiday. The concerns proved to be valid, as ratings were down 36 percent from last year’s broadcasts. The ratings fall so far below expectations that ESPN, which broadcast both games, owes some of the advertisers free airtime.
Use your Slingbox to tune into the College Football Championship Game next Monday, Jan 11 at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
We’ll be back next week with more lists.
