CBS Sports’ telecast of Saturday night’s game generated a 25.9 rating in Atlanta, meaning 25.9% of the market’s TV homes were tuned in on average. That equals an audience of more than 600,000 local homes.

Nationally, the game averaged a 6.2 rating across the 56 metered markets, making it the highest-rated college football game on any network in this young season. It also was the highest-rated college game on CBS in the month of September since the 2013 Alabama-Texas A&M game.
