    Insight Bowl--Lowest TV Ratings of all 34 Bowl Games

    Not surprising, but something needs to be done to get this off the NFL Network if the Big 12 is going to continue to have ties to it.

    Dead last, even with all the other horrid bowls is representative of the Network as much as the two 6-6 teams playing in it.

    .4 Rating

    I'm guessing it would've done 5 x's that on ESPN or ESPN2.

    I believe this was the last year for the NFL Network to broadcast the game. Let me confirm that...

    It would be interesting to see how NFL games do on the NFL Network compared to CBS or ESPN.

    I'm sure they are lower.

    That was the one downfall of the Insight Bowl.

    Re: Insight Bowl--Lowest TV Ratings of all 34 Bowl Games

    I'm sure that the recruits that the staff wanted to see the game saw it. The regular people around the country might not have. Either they don't have NLFN or they missed it due to them not usually having live games at that time. But I'm betting that the staff made sure to let the kids they are recruiting know exactly when and where and if they couldn't see it, a DVD of the game was probably in the mail.

    Either way, it's probably good for the conference to get this game back on ESPN.

    I agree thats rating is terrible, but beating Minnesota is better than getting clobbered by Georgia on Espn or probably losing to Navy.

    But thankfully, the only downfall. Both Insight games are the best of the six bowl games I have attended -- by far and not even close. Never hurts when we win the game.

    I would still go back in a heartbeat, even if it had no TV.

    Love to make it to Alamo one of these days. The stadium is not great, but the City and Riverwalk area would be rocking with Cyclones!

    Add the fact that it started at 5.30 PM CT (6.30 PM ET) on New Year's Eve: a lot of people already gone to dinner or party.

    That game could have not been televised at all and I wouldn't have changed anything. what a great game, location, win, etc. Beating even a bad minny in a bowl is better than a blowout loss that could have potentially went down on national TV. Bowl wins are few and far between for ISU. We take them how we can get them.

    Doesn't bother me, I had a great view from Sun Devil stadium! And Tempe on New Year's Eve wasn't bad either! Been to both Insight Bowls and love it!
