    No it won't. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.

    I agree with your thoughts on broadcast, but it will destroy Auburn Oregon ESPN no ESPN imo.

    Alabama vs. Notre Dame will Shatter the BCSCG ratings record

    It won't get UTx/USCw only because it will be on ESPN and with cable subscribers down because of the Internet becoming a bit more efficient. But it still has a shot.
    ROLL TIDE!

    Maybe I should amend, if all things were equal it would shatter the record........although I still believe it will.

    I would like to think SEC fans would pull for Bama but sometimes I wonder...

    I think most will, actually. I have a lot of UF, auburn, and sc fans as friends and they've all said "please kill notre dame."

    Additionally, although this will be on cable, I agree with CT it will break 21.7 jmo.

    Part of what will see to that is the hype this matchup will receive.

    At the same time, the next five weeks will go by so slooowwww...

    All things being equal, this game would destroy the USC/UT game, but it being on cable will greatly reduce the audience.

    Really wish that the BCSCG adn all of the bowls would move back to network tv.

    We bring the New York and Boston Market. Trust me, I have Sirius and all the NY radio shows can talk about is this matchup.

    The Chicago Tribune said the same thing today about the hype, probable ratings record and that it will attract the "old heads".

    The two most hated teams in College Football playing each other?

    You may be right -- OR -- you may find that there are quite a few who would prefer to watch something else.....

    It will be hyped -- but I'm guessing it will be better than last year, but probably not the highest ever
    Raj: Excuse me, I can't be drinking, I'm about to make an important scientific discovery here!
    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!

    I cannot miss an Auburn game because I hate them so much . Football is not like a sitcom. imo
