    The LSU-Oregon State matchup was the most-watched football game on cable television in 2004. The broadcast had a 3.3 rating (2.9 million households).

    According to lsusports.net

    LSU beat out the Super Bowl?

    Only 2.9 million households? What in the hell was everyone else watching? Evidently, there are many households with severely mixed up priorities in this country...
