Celebration Bowl puts up big TV numbers, outdraws 15 FBS Bowls

The numbers for the Celebration Bowl are in, and they are impressive. North Carolina A&T’s 41-34 win over Alcorn State drew a rating of 1.7 and attracted 2.5 million television viewers.

The Celebration Bowl outdrew 15 FBS bowls, based off Sports Media Watch’s viewership figures. 

Not bad for a group of HBCUs from the FCS.
