What: Catch up on the weekend’s ratings through the live sports top 25 ranking! Here is a quick look at what people watched over the past weekend.

Which Sport Won?

Once again, college football was the weekend’s big winner. The college game between Iowa State and Baylor on Saturday, February 25th managed to attract close to 100,000 viewers through its live ESPN broadcast (check out table below).

What Broadcaster Won?

Thanks to ESPN acquiring the rights to broadcast all college regular season games, the broadcaster (including ESPNU and ESPN2) was the most watched over the weekend.

Out of 13.9 million who watched the Top 25 live sports events last weekend, 5.8 million watched ESPN.

Fox Sports 1 came in second with 3.6 million viewers, mainly thanks to the broadcast of NASCAR races, but also a Premier Boxing Champions fight.

What Else?

As a surprise, coming in fifth on this ranking is the Professional Bowlers Association bowling tournament that was held on Sunday. Broadcasted by ESPN, the event drew 791,000 viewers.
