The UCF Knights’ dramatic win over Cincinnati on Saturday was watched by 1,059,000 viewers, according to ShowBuzzDaily.com, making it the second most-watched Knights game of the 2022 season, trailing only the September 9th game against Louisville (1,850,000).
It is the fifth consecutive Cincinnati-UCF game to draw over a million viewers, although surprisingly it is the least-viewed game of the five games by a significant margin, despite the dramatic finish.
There was very tough competition in that 3:30 time slot. Florida-Georgia, with 5.6 million on CBS, winning that slot likely took away some Orlando casual college football fans that otherwise may have tuned in to the UCF game otherwise. Oklahoma State-Kansas State on FOX also drew 3.38 million.
Cincinnati is now the UCF opponent that has drawn over a million viewers the most times (5), passing Memphis and South Florida (4).
