| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The following is a release from John Heisler, Notre Dame's Senior Associate Athletics Director for Media and Broadcast Relations:


The 3.03 television rating (2,974,026 households) for the Notre Dame-Hawaii game gave the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl the second most improved rating of any of the 34 postseason bowl games in 2008-09.

The '08 Hawaii Bowl rating jumped 106 percent compared to the 1.47 rating last year for the game that featured East Carolina and Boise State. 

The only game that showed more improvement was the Roady's Humanitarian Bowl that finished with 217 percent improvement. Maryland and Nevada in '08 drew a 2.44 compared to a 0.77 for the '07 game between Fresno State and Georgia Tech.
