Last Saturday’s Michigan Notre Dame game was the highest-rated Irish game on NBC in four years. Saturday’s game marked Brian Kelly’s second as Notre Dame coach.
The Wolverines win against the Fighting Irish on Saturday drew a 4.5 rating and 10 share. That’s the highest since a 4.7 rating with a 11 share for Notre Dame’s win over Penn State on September 9th 2006.
Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions that are tuned into a program where as shares are represented by the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time.
Notre Dame will travel to East Lansing today for tomorrow’s game against Michigan State.
Where does the term “the luck of the Irish” come from?
