Orange Bowl ratings hold steady
BRISTOL, Conn. -- The Discover Orange Bowl's television ratings held steady from last year.
Stanford's 40-12 win over Virginia Tech on Monday night on ESPN earned a 7.1 overnight rating. Iowa's 24-14 victory over Georgia Tech drew a 7.2 on Fox a year ago.
The game had a lower rating than a USC-Ohio State regular-season game on ESPN in 2009.
Ratings represent the percentage of all homes with televisions tuned into a program. Overnight ratings measure the country's largest markets.
