The Kentucky/Notre Dame telecast is up 53% over last year’s comparable game and is the highest rating in the telecast window in 10 years.

    Great numbers for a very poorly broadcast game. The announcers were Kentucky haters. Looking at you Len Elmore. The camera angles were maddening as well.

    Sure glad we won.

    Had to flip over to ESPN for some fair analysis.
