Horrible example. B1GCG was a 6 versus 7 matchup w/ a 2.5pt. spread.

That is NOT a good example. The B1G game involved two teams with similar records and similar rankings while the ACCCG offered a matchup between number 3 and number 23. The ACCCG was viewed by most as a potential blowout.

And for much of the ACCCG, it was looking like a blowout. Clemson had a 21 point lead twice. Any channel flippers would have stayed tuned to the B1G game. It was 11pm by the time VT started making the ACCCG interesting.

Not a good example. Both VT and Clemson have proven to be TV ratings draws. That was just not a particularly compelling matchup.

I know when I'm deciding whether or not to view the Pac12CG, SECCG, or B1GCG for instance, I'm looking for the best matchup. And for college football fans in Texas and California, the Wisconsin versus PSU matchup was clearly a better matchup than Clemson versus VT.

Clemson and VT are in the ballpark of fanbases and TV draws when compared to PSU and Wisconsin. But the 6vs.7 mathcup was going to outdraw the 3vs23 matchup every time. I know which I would have been watching.
