University of Hawaii-Brigham Young game sets season viewership record


    Hawaii linebacker Solomon Matautia juggled the ball as he nearly intercepted a BYU pass during a game, Saturday, in Provo, Utah.

Despite a 10:25 p.m. Eastern Time kickoff, the University of Hawaii’s football game at Brigham Young drew 646,000 viewers late Saturday and early Sunday morning.

The Nielsen numbers were reported by Show Buzz Daily.

The Cougars won the non-conference game, 49-23, that was shown on ESPN2 for 3 hours 23 minutes.

It was the largest metered audience for a UH game this season and first on an ESPN platform this season. Three other Rainbow Warrior games were carried by the CBS Sports Network.

The UH-BYU game ranked eighth among 15 metered college football games shown on cable Saturday, topping Iowa-Indiana, Purdue-Illinois and Wyoming-Fresno State among others.

Two more UH games, Oct. 27 at Fresno State and Nov. 24 at San Diego State, are scheduled for ESPN platforms.

Saturday’s game with Nevada at Aloha Stadium will be a Spectrum pay-per-view showing.
