Media Extra: College Playoff Ratings

(Sports sponsorship and media expert Larry) "Mann's worry is one where Alabama destroys Washington, which would likely result in the CFP again being faced with same situation of less-than-stellar ratings. Many oddsmakers are currently providing a spread of Alabama beating Washington by 14 points. If Alabama covers, then it could be another sad New Years Eve ending for the CFP."
   (From a FORBES Magazine article.)

     The ratings for any College Football Playoff or Championship game will be killer in Alabama, but that won't do anything for the networks who charge advertisers for a national audience.

      Kickoff is at 2 p.m. CT on Dec. 31 for The Peach Bowl semifinal of Alabama vs Washington.
     The Fiesta Bowl semifinal between Ohio State and Clemson begins at 6 p.m. CT.


(Oh yea...I'll be filling in Saturday night, anchoring the Alabama News Network news at 10:00p.m.)
