After Three Losses, Colorado’s Ratings Bonanza Is Losing Steam

Oct 16, 2023

This season, the Colorado Buffaloes created a ratings frenzy — with ESPN and Fox, college football’s broadcast duopoly, each fighting over the chance to broadcast them.

But after losing three games and suffering a major viewership decrease this week, Deion Sanders’ Buffs appear to be losing steam.

On Friday night, Colorado’s double-overtime loss to Stanford drew just 3.3 million viewers, according to Sports TV Ratings. That’s a huge drop from the 7.24 million who watched them lose to USC in Week 5 — the last time the Buffs were on national TV.
