SALT LAKE CITY – It was a big weekend in the Pac-12 as No. 18 Utah faced No. 5 Washington and the viewership ratings for the big game didn’t disappoint.
According to a post from Brett McMurphy, Penn State versus Michigan came in as the most-watched game of the weekend 9.16 million viewers and a 5.0 rating.
The second most-watched game of the weekend was the Utes versus the Huskies which brought in 5.17 million viewers and a 2.8 rating.

Compare that to the other big game in the Pac-12- USC versus Oregon that came in seventh this past weekend with 3.01 million viewers and a 1.7 rating.
A Compelling, Close Game
Utah versus Washington had it all over the weekend.
Before the ball was ever snapped, both sides needed the win for various reasons.
The Huskies up to that point were still the only unbeaten team in the Pac-12 and certainly needed to remain so in order to help make a stronger argument for entrance into the College Football Playoff.
The Utes on the other hand still had a long-shot chance of keeping their dreams of a third Pac-12 Title alive but needed to win out in order to do so.

There was some drama with Utah’s “Pig Farmer” out-maneuvering Washington’s “Heisman Hopeful” in the first half, the recreation of the infamous “Kaelin Clay Goal-Line Drop” and of course some interesting referee calls that are still sparking debate and discussion days later.
