  1. There has been a lot of talk about there being too many bowl games in college football with attendance down (though ratings haven't taken a hit). Currently there are 39 bowl games and four college all-star bowls, in addition to the FCS and D2 playoffs which are televised. I was curious to see how the TV ratings for wrestling compared to the bowl games. The Camellia Bowl was played on a Saturday night and featured South Alabama against Bowling Green on ESPN. The game was considered the lowest tier game by many analyst and it drew the lowest viewership with 1.1 Million watching. The NCAA Wrestling Championship Finals also aired on a Saturday night on ESPN and they had 630,000 tuned in for the 2014 finals. Attendance at both events was about the same with 20,256 attending the game in Montgomery, Alabama. The only college football game, I noticed, on ESPN with similar ratings to the 2014 Wrestling Championship Finals (session), was the Alabama A&M vs North Carolina A&M game on a Sunday with 699,000. I am really curious to see where this year's championship ratings stand. The team race, most people believe, is wide open which would make it seem like there should be more people interested in watching if the team race draws. I don't get the feeling that wrestling has as many casual followers this year as they did during the last two years.
