The Big Ten’s return to the national spotlight delivered monster TV ratings Saturday night.

More than 13.9 million Fox viewers made Ohio State’s 34-24 loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game the most-watched college football game of the season. The audience surpassed the previous high for Nov. 30 Iron Bowl between Auburn and Alabama (13.8 million) and marked Fox’s highest-rated Saturday night broadcast since an NFL playoff game last January.

Wisconsin’s rout of Nebraska in last year’s Big Ten title game drew 5.1 million viewers.
