I am not sure if an accurate regression analysis could be done on this set of data, but just using the eyeball test, it seems to me that Penn "moves the needle" more than some of the other schools, when it comes to TV ratings.

Ironic that much of the attendance decline between 2013 and 2015 is the result of Penn's home attendance dropping off a cliff.

On the flip side, ratings-wise, Yale and Columbia don't appear to be outstanding draws. That may change now that their on-field fortunes have taken a turn for the better.

Sobering: almost as many people bought tickets for the Y-H game this year as bothered to tune in--nationwide.

In order to attract television coverage from NBC Sports or ESPN8, etc. I believe they should require the host team to have a plan to promote and maximize attendance for that game. No plan no television coverage. The schools that actually promote the games and draw fans get the TV coverage, those that don't which probably means Cornell are out of luck. This year the best game in the league was probably the Dartmouth vs. Yale game which they could have promoted to draw at least 10,000 fans, but as usual the AD's sat on the A... and did nothing and they drew a measly 5K. I'll bet Dartmouth would have won that game if they had filled the place up. Welcome to capitalism!

Sorry I meant the Dartmouth vs. Columbia game not the Yale game. Anyway both teams were tied for first that game, but attendance was a real disappointment considering it was the match up of the week.

It wasn't on NBCSN. It was on Eleven Sports.

For all we know, that game got decent ratings. The instant thread deals with NBCSN ratings.
