UCF's 49-42 victory against USF delivered ABC's third-highest audience for a 3:30 p.m. Black Friday game dating to 2002.

The game delivered a 3.2 overnight rating, meaning 3.2 percent of all U.S. televisions in use were tuned into the game. It represented a 45-percent increase from last year's Nebraska-Iowa game shown in the same time window.

Orlando was the top local market with an 11.1 rating, followed closely by Tampa (10.1).
