It's common sense. Unaffiliated viewers will usually watch best matchup.

And from what I could tell, Clemson, FSU, and Louisville were TV draws. The FSU vs. Louisville and Clemson vs. Louisville games were big. FSU vs. Miami did really well. Oddly, Clemson vs. FSU did not have good numbers. Don't know what that was about. Was there a World Series game or something?

I will say that Virginia Tech wasn't that big a draw, though the Arkansas bowl game was quite respectable. The Battle at Bristol was rather meh, but we were ranked fairly low at the time and it turned into a blowout in the second half. But top 10 Virginia Tech teams have traditionally done pretty well. Heck, our game against OSU last season broke ESPN records. #1 OSU was the main draw there no doubt, but I think the fact that we had beaten then the year before offered an interesting storyline. People will watch Virginia Tech when we're good.

And of course, the B1G was given far more ABC Noon and 8pm games. But, when given the prime time games, the ACC schools did quite well.
Now don't get me started about ACC scheduling.
