TV Ratings For Every SEC Team

Since the college football season came to an end on Monday night (or Tuesday morning if you’re in the Eastern Time Zone) there’s been a look back at several topics.  First was the list of the active coaches with the most wins.  Since then the discussion has shifted to TV ratings, going from the least watched games to the most watched games.  Now, it’s time for a breakdown of the TV ratings for every team in the SEC.  Teams will be listed in alphabetical order and games for each team are listed in chronological order.  Please note that games that aired on the SEC Network are not included as they are not tracked by Nielsen and numbers are therefore unavailable.  Also please note that since all of these teams are in the SEC they play almost everybody else meaning there will be some overlap.
