Solid ratings for UConn/Houston game
According to ESPN, the game averaged 373,000 viewers which is right on target with what 3:30 p.m. Saturday games draw on ESPNU as usually the number is somewhere between 300,000-600,000 with some give or take either way.
In case you didn't happen to check this out yesterday, I did some checking and the last time Connecticut natives had a 100-yard rushing and 100-yard receiving performance in the same game for UConn came in 1990 against Yale and Maine as Victor Taylor ran for 121 yards in each game and Alex Davis had 105 receiving yards against Yale and 121 in the Maine game. Why is this relevant? Well, Norwalk native Noel Thomas caught seven passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns while Ansonia's Arkeel Newsome ran for 114 yards in the win over Houston.
