Thanks to Nick Saban, CBS got its first ratings win of the season with Bama’s pillaging of Texas A&M, while thanks the Tiger Woods, Golf had the largest sporting audience of the weekend not named NFL.

Alabama’s 45-23 win over Texas A&M drew 5.6 million viewers to top the college football ratings. Here are the five most-watched games of the past weekend.

Texas A&M @ Alabama CBS – 2:30 PM 5.6 million

Stanford @ Oregon ABC – 7:00 PM 4.2 million

Georgia @ Missouri ESPN – 11:00 AM 3.3 million

Wisconsin @ Iowa Fox – 7:30 PM 3.3 million

TCU @ Texas Fox – 3:30 PM 2.9 million

At 2:30 PM on FS1 414,000 lost souls actually watched Kansas @ Baylor

Meanwhile Sunday at the FedEx Championships, AKA the Tiger Woods Invitational, 7.2 million tuned in to see Woods cap his comeback with his 80th tour win. To put the Woods Effect into perspective, that is a almost 3 times the number of people (2.4 million) who viewed the 2017 final round.

Saturday 3rd round numbers were just as absurd. While 2.9 million were watching Texas throttle TCU, 3.8 million were watching Woods.
